Well. I don't see a map either. I was thinking a link would show a map, but no.

There are a few tourist type things here. I volunteered at a museum with an old line shaft machine shop and a large Corliss steam engine that drives it all. I give you a tour. Lakeshore is amazing. I work at the water filtration plant right on the beach, so I spend a lot of time there now.

Muskegon is suffering a bit from the Detroit syndrome, but not nearly as bad. There are a few tourist type things here.

Would that be the Muskegon Heritage Museum? I just learned of its existence last year and visited. Nice place and met some nice volunteers who were willing to chat and show me around.

There is also the Silversides submarine museum. Sub used to be at Navy Pier in Chicago. Spent a night on her when my oldest was a cub scout years ago.

Lots of little towns of possible interest along Lake Mich. on Michigan's west coast. No salt, no sharks, nice beaches. Even some surfing if you catch the right day.

Yes it is the Heritage Museum, and if some 6'3" blonde/read head guy showed you around, that was me.
