We will be staying in Ypsilanti near Ann Arbor and would like to go to a beach with sand. Preferably no longer than an hours drive. What are the best/favorite spots? Thanks!

You are pretty land locked. Your best bet would be to check out the Huron-Clinton metro parks.

Try Silver Lk off Territorial and Dex/Pinkney Rd. Beautiful park.

Independence Lake County Park is another option:


It's got a beach and a spray play area.
