"Blue Wave" Pere Marquette Beach
I grew up about a mile from Muskegon's Pere Marquette Beach and I've always thought it was one of the best beaches anywhere. Seems the Clean Beaches Council agrees. As the Muskegon Chronicle reports, for the fifth year running now the council has certified the vast expanses of white sugar sand at PM as a Blue Wave beach. It's the only beach in Michigan that's certified, just one of two Great Lakes beaches so honored and one of just 46 national Blue Wave beaches, most of them in Florida.
