These are for the people who would rather gaze onto the lakeshore when the clock strikes midnight. These are Michigan’s best lakeshore NYE parties, all for under $100!

New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to spent on the dance floor. Sometimes all you need is a little Michigan scenery to provide the closure or new beginning that you crave on this most auspicious of nights. And what a way to celebrate it, on the lakeshore! Here are the best lakeshore NYE events in Michigan. I’ve only included events $100 or lower, because who has money at this time of year?
