Your Silver Lake Bucket List
There is so much to do when you stay at the Chunky Monkey. The Silver Lake area provides fun and entertainment for the Adrenalin Freak as well as the Art Connoisseur. Please enjoy our bucket list that was created just for you.
Silver Lake is the Dune capital of the east and no where this side of the Mississippi will you see more exciting Dune Buggys, Quads and Offroad vehicles! You can ride hard all morning then pull over for a quick dip into crystal clear Lake Michigan and go back and challenge the Dunes or chill along more than a mile of Lake Michigan Beach.
Mac Woods Dune Rides
Motorsports not your thing? Then take the whole family just up the road to Mac Dunes for a “Topless” tour of the Dunes. Mac Dunes has been revealing the ever changing Dune landscape to generations of travelers. Don’t Miss This One!
The Lake Michigan Shoreline
Our Lake Michigan shore line offers a relaxing, carefree getaway with miles of sandy Lake Michigan beaches, lighthouses, fun events and above all fantastic sunsets. Don’t miss the lighthouse tour just minutes away at Little Sable Point.
Shopping in Pentwater
The beautiful lakeside village of Pentwater, with its scenic setting and nautical atmosphere, has become a destination for people in search of eclectic art. Shop owners display their merchandise with an eye for beauty, and art galleries feature amazing paintings, jewelry, pottery, photography, and other items to satisfy the art lover or just plain window shopper in you. In addition to the art galleries and studios there are many boutiques, candy stores and unique shops to enjoy on a sunny Lake Michigan afternoon.
