  • Wonderful nature center packs a lot in a small space. A very special environment to explore with easy trails and board walks thru woods and wetlands to a picturesque Lake Michigan shoreline.  more »
  • Beautiful stroll through the woods to picturesque beach! Easy hike on well maintained deck-type pathway. Go at sunset - they are amazing! We've come to Thorne Swift for years and it never disappoints....  more »
