There is no comparison between the Atlantic and a Great Lake.
In fact, I consider the word "beach" to be abused when used as a description for any lakeshore.

If you are talking Ohio I would agree with you.

Depends on what you're looking for. I don't spend too much time in the ocean ... vacation is just a way to get away and relax somewhere in my eyes. If you like to swim in the ocean, then you are correct. If you don't really care then Michigan sounds like it might be an alternative depending on what other things they have going on. You don't know till you try.
Indiana Dunes is a nice introduction, not so far.

We went there one year for a short vacay. Took a train into Chicago for a day. Very nice.

George and I have spent a lot of time in the same area. The northern gulf area puts the Atlantic beaches to shame.

Cold water is cold water. Ever been to the beach in New England in July? Nobody goes in the water unless they're in a wetsuit.

Spot on. There are no better beaches in the continental US than those of the Emerald Coast, from Panama City Beach to Pensacola.

Used to tour the inland waterways on the Gulf Coast with a relative who had a houseboat.

Had a lot of fun.

Still prefer freshwater for swimming.

I grew up on the east coast. There are still a bunch of cartoons that will never ever air again. Trans-Lux was huge in the 60's. A singer, Dobie Gray, did the sound track for Hercules.
WPIX and WNEW out of NYC had all the so called cutting edge cartoons at the time.
Saturday mornings were our prime watching moments especially during the rainy season. We too spent most of our time with pick up baseball games or hanging at the beach. Ahhh, the good ol' days of youth...
I remember Dobie Gray. Drift away. Guy had one silky smooth voice.

Cartoons, every Saturday morning. Then when American Bandstand or Soul Train came on, my dad would switch the station tp wrestling or the roller derby. Hilarious because that was our cue to leave the house, rain or shine, not because he wanted the TV, he wanted us out of his hair for a few hours. But we'd manage to come back late afternoon to see the Ghoulardi and the horror movies. I think those were broadcast in Cleveland, too.

Dunno. I'd drive 12 hours north to Mackinac anytime. Pristine, gorgeous. No swimming beaches, but the Grand Hotel, horses, and serenity. There are few areas of the country I can say I've despised or haven't found something to enjoy. One IS Miami. You are spot on that the beaches along the Florida panhandle are the best. Sand like sugar, clear blue warm water, and there are some very nice resorts down there. Been all over Florida, and I think that is my favorite region.

Sorry to burst in, but didn't Gilligan spin off of Dobie Gray? What was Gilligan's name? Bob....

True, unless you go to Key West.

Florida beaches, well, all of Florida has changed a lot.

You are doing this on purpose, aren't you?

And it wasn't Dobie Gray, it was Johnny Nash.
