Lake St. Clair Metropark

31300 Metro Pkwy, Harrison Charter Township, MI 48045, USA

Locals often call Michigan “The Third Coast,” and with good reason. With miles upon miles of shoreline, you don’t have to travel far to enjoy sun and sand come summer. Instead of heading to points north or west, Detroiters flock to Metropark in the summer. “Metro Beach,” as locals have dubbed the shoreline, is a haven for sunbathers and snowmobilers as the spot is open year-round for people of all ages seeking relaxation or thrills. Guests can hike through meadows and marshlands, go ice fishing, or meander along the 1600-foot boardwalk.
