Expect temperatures to range from 70 F to 80 F during the day from June-September. During the summer months, mornings and evenings may be cooler; typically lower 70 – 60 F.


In addition to the beaches in downtown Lexington, there are many beaches both north and south along the Lake Huron coast.

From Port Huron north along highway M-25 to Port Austin at the “Tip of Michigan’s Thumb,” you’ll find Michigan at its best: turquoise-striped water and lots of sand.

As you travel farther north, you’ll encounter spectacular bluffs overlooking Lake Huron and inviting towns like Port Sanilac, a Michigan harbor town.

The shoreline becomes a bit wooded as you head north along the highway, but you can catch glimpses of the beautiful blue Lake Huron shoreline that beckons you.

Watch the Sunrise

Facing east along the Lake Huron coast, Lexington catches all of the sun’s beauty as it rises up and out of the water in the early morning hours.

If you’re lucky enough to catch the sun coming up on Michigan’s “Sunrise Side,” you’ll have memories for a lifetime.

Charming Lexington, MI has everything that an old-fashioned Michigan beach town designation requires: a charming shopping area, a quaint General Store and a stunning beachfront within walking distance.

With three public beaches as well as a public marina, Lexington maintains a quiet small-town feel – even during the busy summer months when visitors flock to the sandy beaches and line up for sweet treats at the local ice cream shops.
