Mears, Michigan is a lake destination best known for the Silver Lake and the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. Visitors come here to relax and unwind in nature or check out the historic downtown to learn more about Charles Mears -- pioneer and lumber business man, as well as the namesake of the town.
A fun and popular pastime in Mears is exploring the dunes -- whether by foot, in a jeep, dune buggy or quad. If your pace is a little slower, pack a picnic and disappear off into the dunes for a lazy beach day. During the warm months, hit the water for some swimming, tubing, and water skiing or sit back and enjoy the scenery from a boat.
Elsewhere, the Little Sable Point Lighthouse perches on a scenic bluff and provides excellent views from the top of its tower over Lake Michigan.
There are great events year-round in Mears but summer is particularly beautiful and September tends to have less crowds.
