GMA's Most Beautiful Place in America

The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is located on the lower peninsula & stretches over 64 miles of sand along the crystal clear waters of Lake Michigan. It includes more than 50,000 acres of land, 26 inland lakes, 2 islands, countless ship wrecks & of course the monumental sand dunes from which it gets its name. The fresh water lakes around the Dunes have been compared to the waters of the Caribbean minus the salt water & the risk of sharks! Among national parks experts, Sleeping Bear is considered a hidden gem. To see the telecast on Good Morning America, click here. To read about GMA's outdoor guide to the Dunes, click here.
