Ride along the shores of Lake Michigan or head to Lake Harbor Park, a small gem of a park on Mona Lake where glassy waters beckon kayakers. Explore the streams, bays and inlets of the lake. Stroll through the wooded trails into the dunes, relax on the observation deck or visit the beautiful beach on the shores of Lake Michigan and watch the sailboats cruising by.
