If you want to hit the beach this weekend, make sure it is open.

Summertime in Michigan is the best. Whether you plan to hit the water on a boat or at the beach, we all enjoy some sun and relaxation. The only downside is when your favorite beach is closed or has a contamination advisory.

This summer is flying by so don't miss out on getting some relaxation with friends under the sun. It has been several years since I've gathered my friends to hit the beach and that is going to have to change soon.
