Luna Pier, Michigan

Luna Beach Pier ~ Ohio Day Trips ~ Our Cozy Den

My kids LOVE the beach, but we hadn’t been to one in over 4 long years. So I decided to surprise the kids with a beach day at an adorable beach about an hour from where we live.

This beach sits in the quaint little town of Luna Pier, Michigan. It’s just over the border from Ohio, a few exits north of Toledo. We ate lunch at a neat little hometown cafe on the main drag, then we headed to the beach afterwards. It was overcast that day, so we didn’t even bother with our suits. I knew the kids would just want to wade in, play in the sand, and collect seashells anyway.

Their faces when they saw where we were going — they had no idea!

The pretty lighthouse sits right on the beach (and it has feet rinsing stations and bathrooms!)

Connor and Sophie concentrated very hard on building their sandcastles.

And Finn and I had fun burying our feet in the sand.

We all had a great day, and we’ll definitely be back! It’s a really nice beach, and it was very quiet – not crowded at all, and well-maintained.
