Park
“Ludington's City Beach. Beautiful spot for beach hangs and sunsets. From the website: "Stearns Park is a focal point in Ludington, where so many people gather for a number of activities. This is the city's largest beach, with 2,500 feet of sandy shoreline and plenty of FREE parking. Here you can swim, build a sand castle, and enjoy the view of the Ludington North Breakwater Light, open for tours in the summer. The half-mile walk out to the light is popular among couples, families, and fishermen. There are no lifeguards, but beach patrol officers are on duty from 11am-8pm. There is also free Wi-Fi at the park."”

Pizza Place

“A local secret for big pizzas with a ton of toppings. There's not a lot of seating so we'd recommend ordering ahead for pick up. They open at 4pm, so they are not available for lunch.”
