Torch Lake, Michigan, USA
Michigan's Finest Lake?Torch Lake is the second-largest lake in Michigan—and one of the state's most enticing. The glacier-carved lake is known for its Caribbean-like waters, which range from aquamarine to royal blue, and massive sandbar, where boaters drop anchor and chill in the summer months. White-sand beaches complete the Caribbean vibe, accessible from a couple of public-access points. Rent an Airbnb nearby and allow all your Midwest summer dreams to come true.
