Oscoda has a beautiful public beach with clean sand and no rocks or seaweed to worry about. There is a playground and splash pad, volleyball court, public bathrooms/showers, a short pier, skateboard park, basketball court, and band shell.

The Wharton Center is a wonderful place to see a show. There truly isn’t a bad seat in either theater, Cobb Hall or the Pasant Theater. Tickets are usually reasonably priced, you can buy online or at the box office. MSU students can get a discount for most shows. I’ve seen many great shows like The Lion King, Wicked, Mamma Mia, Waitress, Pippin, Blue Man Group, The Phantom of the Opera, Harry Connick Jr., Kristin Chenowith, all without leaving East Lansing!

The museum has a lot of basic science education with fun and interactive exhibits. I went on a free weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it with two adult friends. It is pretty hot in the summer as they do not have a/c. I'm not sure that I would have paid the full ticket price.

There are definitely better beaches on Lake Michigan. This one is vastly more secluded than others, though it was still fairly crowded on an August Saturday. We naively did "beach day" with coolers and food and tents, this was not the right location for that. The walk through the park to the shore was 3/4 mile, and somehow uphill both ways. If we hadn't been hauling crap for 5 people plus lunch and snacks and two umbrella/tents it would have been beautiful and enjoyable. The beach area has largely been consumed by grass, there is about a 1/2 mile stretch of sandy beach that is about 25 feet deep from water to dune. Beautiful, but probably not the best.

Such a cute little shop! We stopped in for gelato and the flavors were amazing. Not the best gelato I've ever had (not very smooth), but delicious and refreshing on a hot day. Well enjoyed walking along the water right outside.

My friends and I loved this pie. There are tons of shops selling key lime pie, so I'm sure you can find comparable taste, but I loved the chocolate dipped-frozen key lime pie on a stick and the ladies I was with both enjoyed their regular pie. This is also an old-fashioned candy shoppe with a ton of candies and treats to choose from

You should go for the photo op, but beware the long line of tourists doing the same thing. If you're quick you can get a selfie in while the people in line switch out. There is also a cool statue right next to this, of a man blowing a conch shell, and a street art poem.

Cute little home-made pepper sauce shop. They have a very wide-variety of sauces and things to purchase, and they will let you sample any of them for free!

Note that the mapped location for this site is wrong. It is actually located on the east coast in the town of Cushendun, not in Moyle.
