“The water is amazingly clean and refreshing. You can see freighters in the distance and it's not too crowded. It is friendly and there is no drinking. Seems like a great place for kids. There's the gravelly rock on the beach for the first few feet until you get into the water, then it's all sand, so some water shoes may be helpful for tender feet. However, it's not too deep, way out, so you can do a lot of swimming with ease. There is someone there renting floatable paddles and there is a concession stand with hot dogs and other food that is quite decent. Very nice place to go for a day.”

“Thomas Edison and I share the same hometown. We have iconic bridges to Canada, the Blue Water river, PH-Mackinac race, a lighthouse, beaches, historical museum, and LOTS of freighters. In fact go to the Restaurant under the bridge (Freightors) and leave John a big tip at happy hour while you see them all steam by from the patio dining. ”
