Extraordinary sunsets, incredible restaurants, and a striving community. All phrases to describe Norton Shores.

Norton Shores, home to the Mona Shores Sailors, where students thrive in arts, academic and sports.

With the many different benefits, there are a few negatives..

“I love that I can just go head to the beach whenever I feel like it,” sophomore Hayden Helmer said. “Since I live so close, it only takes a matter of minutes to get to the wonderful Lake Michigan.”

Other students also enjoy having the beach be so close to their homes. Since it is only a few minutes walk or drive to see the beauty itself, it’s easy for students to plan the “perfect day” on Lake Michigan.

“I would be at the beach from dusk till dawn,” Helmer said, “with my toes buried in the sand, soaking up the sun.”

However, there are some downfalls to living so close to the Lake, such as the colder temperatures during the winter months.

“Since it does get so cold during these winter months, it makes it harder to do things that I would normally like to do,” sophomore Kathryn Roossien said.

Although many students would like to travel to a warmer state during those pesky winter months, there are always the benefits to living in the mitten.

“I love going to Lake Harbor and just hiking the beautiful trails and setting up a hammock near the lake,” Roossien said. “It definitely makes up for all those below thirty temperatures.”
