All along the Southern shore of Lake Michigan

Michigan City/Long Beach, Indiana.

We have been finding lots of glass all along this coast for many years.

Most of it is on the smaller side but we do find larger pieces.

I'd say that we find glass that ranges from old to newer and large to very small -- it's all here.

I found a nice piece of orange(!)and a large piece of light blue glass this year. 

Last year I found a small piece of red glass too.

We usually find clear, amber and green glass. 

My sister has found two large pieces of clear glass with wire mesh inside. 

We have found crockery, aqua and blue too. 

A couple of years ago I saw a piece of light purple glass that someone found.

Great spot!

I live in Saint Joseph, Mi and I tend to find a decent amount of glass at Lions Park Beach. Waiting until later in the afternoon/early evening usually gets me the best results. I have found blue, green, amber and clear thus far. All different hues of these colors. I have yet to find any red- but I haven't been hunting very long!

Sea Glass-Southern shore of Lake Michigan
by: Anonymous

I recently was visiting family who have a cabin on Lake Michigan.

They introduced me to the hobby and I must say it is very addicting.

I usually went out in the early morning for about 2 hours.

In seven days I found a quart size bag full of white,some aqua blue and cobalt blue, brown, light and dark green and 2 lavender.

I was so excited and now can't wait to check out my local beach.

I live in Grand Haven and can rarely find sea glass.

I did go camping at a private campground in Covert, Mi a couple years ago and was able to find a decent amount in a couple days.

Anyone have any other suggestions along Lake Michigan?

I have looked on beaches of Ma. but my husband and I are coming to Michigan and could you help me find areas where I might find beach glass?

Thanks a million.

You really found some great pieces and great colors.

I have high hopes. But where should we go?

Thank you much,

Mary from Iowa
