“Great place for a day at the beach!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

I am from this area and I have watched Silver Beach morph over the years. Once a great amusement park, for years after the House of David amusement park was long gone, it was a beautiful beach with no other amenities. However the city has gone to great lengths to renovate and now it is a great place to take the family or relax and get some tan lines. It has a concession, bathrooms, grills, and other things that will make it a great day for anyone to watch the surf in the views of our beautiful lighthouses. Its close to the carousel, and water park with fountains to run through. It gets crowded fast, but there is parking close by. It is a great stop for those visiting our area-it will make you want to come back!

“Family Fun at a top 10 Beach!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

No better way to spend a summer day than at the beach and St. Joseph's Silver Beach has been rated one of the top 10 Family Beaches in the USA. Their are BBQ Grills, a snack bar, volleyball nets, kids slides, restrooms and changing rooms - you'll enjoy it .... also just off the beach is a water fountain and water cannons that kids enjoy running under.

“Fun at this beach.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Playground equipment at this beach was a great idea. Also the concession areas and clean beach/bathroom are just a few of the amenities. There is a huge fountain area for the kids and adults to run thru. A curious kids museum actually 2 museums available. Just good clean fun with great people everywhere you go.

“None better”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

If you look this beach up online, you will see many TOP rankings, best beaches for families, best sunsets. Absolutely worth the trip. Also adjacent or nearby other great beaches in SW MI: Lion's Park Beach, Tiscornia Beach, Jean Klock ( my favorite) and more.
