Michigan enjoys 1,300 square miles of inland lakes. It’s nicknamed the Great Lakes state for good reason. In fact, Jet Ski Madness recently named Michigan as a top place to Jet Ski in the country.
“Finding the finest spots to jet ski might be challenging because there are so many interesting and fun water bodies all throughout the United States. This guide will lead you to places that have more to offer than just a nice place to go boating,” the feature explains.
In total, Jet Ski Madness highlights 13 of the best places to Jet Ski in the United States. Of the 13, Lake Michigan was the third destination on the list.
Lake Michigan is the only of the five great lakes that is entirely in the United States. It is a great place to start up your jet ski engine. There are also many beaches along Lake Michigan. This makes it a popular vacation spot for many states in the northern region. The “third coast” is filled with soft sands and dunes. Furthermore, from the northern tip to the southern Indiana border, there are numerous Michigan-based yacht clubs along the lake.
“Lake Michigan is a wildly popular place for jet skiing since it is so close to so many major cities. The Great Lake provides a nearby coastline for the residents of Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Chicago, as well as major communities on the west side of Michigan like Grand Rapids,” Jet Ski Madness says.
The average temperature of Lake Michigan in the summer is 62°F. In July, it can spike up to 73°F. The waters are typically calm and smooth, allowing for an enjoyable jet ski ride. It is also 307 miles wide and 118 miles across. This Michigan lake, named a top place to jet ski in the country, allows plenty of space to comfortably explore.
