In my opinion, summers are meant for spending time at the beach. I don't care if it's a lakeside beach, a tropical beach, or a make-shift beach in your own backyard, if you don't spend a good amount of time with your toes in the sand and behinds in the water, you aren't doing summer correctly.

Different Types of Beaches

If you Google "types of beaches" you will find that technically there are four different types; sandy, rocky, frozen, and tropical, but I disagree.

To me, there are three different kinds of beaches, popular beaches, lazy beaches, and fun beaches. Popular beaches are ones that everyone goes to and you usually see a lot of people you know. Lazy beaches are more remote and meant for relaxing, while fun beaches are ones that offer a TON more to do than just lay out and swim.

One of Wisconsin's Best Fun Beaches

Did you know there is a beach in Wisconsin that offers a whole lot of water fun, plus an awesome drone light show every weekend in the summer?!? It's called Bear Paw Beach, and you can find it within Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in Caledonia, Wisconsin.

Your entire family will love this beach thanks to the huge inflatable waterpark and swimming area...

And, most importantly, the super cool Nothern Lights Drone Show they run every Friday and Saturday night in the summer, and Wednesday nights too during peak vacay times.

Everything You Need to Know About the Northern Lights Drone Show

Bear Paw Beach's drone show features "50 illuminated, synchronized drones programmed to dance to the beat and create dozens of designs in the sky above you", and begins when the sun goes down, (usually around 9:30 p.m.).

There is a $10 admission fee for the Northern Lights Drone Show which allows you to enter the beach at 7 p.m. where you can enjoy yard games, a jumping pillow, kids activities, music, and more before the big show. Premium seating options are available too, just check out for more information.
