Northfield, IL, United States
My family has been vacationing in Michiana for one week in August every year since I was very little. We spend most of our time on the beach reading and searching for beach treasures. It is the most relaxing week of summer and I look forward to it every year. It will always hold a place in my heart and I hope in the future to continue this tradition when I start my own family.

Childhood memories, my backyard was several acres of open fields, and a huge rolling hill under a hardwood forest! which we thought was a mountain as kids. The best memories I have, tobogganing under a full moon, and sledding every day in the Winter, the days when I loved Winter! Then the arrival of Spring & bunnies were everywhere, and the maple trees were tapped for Maple Syrup, singing birds & best of all when you’re a kid...mud! and rubber boots for splashing! I still love the smell of mud in the Spring! Then Summer, my favourite season of all...barefeet, butterflies, picnics, every minute of everyday day in the great outdoors. building tree forts, flying kites, does anyone fly kites anymore? and finally the season of colour, Fall! no more barefeet, but so much colour, collecting leaves, and running through them & the arrival of pumpkins! I feel so blessed to have had this as my playground as a child, unique memories I will always treasure.
I've been to this island twice in the summer of 2015 with my parents and relatives. Great memories and experience.
This place offers tourists a beautiful scenic view of the bay.
