Natural Air Conditioning on Wisconsin’s East Coast

A couple of us from Relax Wisconsin headed out to the shores of Lake Michigan on Sunday, June 10th, and spent the afternoon at beautiful Point Beach State Forest near Two Rivers. As the thermometer on our van said it was 88 degrees, it was clearly much more comfortable on the beach.

Point Beach offers 127 campsites, a self-guided nature trail, Hiking/Ski trails, picnic areas as well as a sandy beach for family activities. Along the beach you can view Rawley Point Lighthouse (see picture). The lighthouse was originally built in 1853 and was replaced with the current steel tower in 1894.

If you park at the north end of the park, near the concession stand, there is wheelchair access to the beach (see picture).

During our walk on the beach we saw many families enjoying their day. From just laying in the sun, building sand castles, getting buried in the sand (see picture), to flying kites, the possibilities are endless.

To top it off, we ended at the concession stand and we both enjoyed a waffle cone with some delicious Cedar Crest ice cream.
