Weko Beach showcases 40-acres of wooded dunes and 960 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline in the City of Bridgman, Southwest Michigan. Its sunsets are legendary with plenty of room to gaze as our biggest star slowly descends over a sometimes calm, sometimes wild lake scene. At the precise moment of summer sunsets, live bugle Taps is played on the beach house deck while visitors pause in respectful silence. On eight summer Sundays, evening entrance is free during live band performances. Weko Beach has one of only three "direct access" boat launches in the State of Michigan, especially suited to small fishing and sailing watercraft, kayaks and canoes. It's less than two-hour drive from Chicago, less than three from Ann Arbor, Indianapolis and Detroit. Beach access and the beachside Community Room (for rent) are available year-round, open daily from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.
