We Michiganders have the distinction of being one of the top states in the union for boat ownership. 

West Michigan boaters; early fall is a wonderful time to trailer or cruise our fresh waterways (or the great lakes themselves).  As we all know, summers in Michigan are a blessing and all too short. So while the weather is still nice and the chill has not settled in yet; have a cruise around our Michigan waters and consider a late fall trip to grab a few amazing foliage shots along our beautiful Michigan shorelines as well!

To incorporate some fun into your family and friends’ cruising, consider docking and dining:

Dockers Fish House, 3505 Marina View, Muskegon.WEBSITE

There are other similar-type locations heading North or many inland lake locations as well – you know your favorite water view location!  Don’t regret taking advantage of the late summer/early fall boating season!
