Spending time by the water is one of our family’s favorite activities. If you haven’t been to Aronson Island in Escanaba, I recommend checking it out. This man made island is right inside Ludington Park on Lake Michigan. On any given warm day in the summer, you’ll see kids with their families on the beach, people headed out on their boats, fisherman, dogs being walked, runners and bikers alike. Our summers in the U.P. may be short in comparison to other areas of the country but they really are special and Aronson Island has some true beauty to offer the next time you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy an Escanaba summer day.
