Torch Lake is Michigan’s longest inland lake and is the place to be in Traverse City on the Fourth of July! This lake boasts the clearest water in Michigan, and is famous for its legendary sandbars. See why Torch Lake is Michigan’s Own Slice of the Carribean. The gorgeous, shallow sandbars at the south end of Torch Lake are a party hot spot in the summer. The lake also features sandbars at the north end of the lake. The steep drop offs from the sandbars create the jaw-dropping turquoise and deep blue rings around the lake.
