2. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Michigan
Don’t hesitate when you find a Petoskey stone here, because you might get rich. These ‘stones’ are actually prehistoric fossilized corals and, guess what; they are really rare to find unless you’re enjoying the sun on Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
In fact, it is pretty common for locals to stumble upon these disguised treasures. However, it appears that the reserve in the Lower Peninsula has some pretty clear restrictions: you aren’t allowed to take anything from the beach.
If you do hope to brag yourself with a prehistoric fossilized coral, then you’ll have to drive approximately 30 minutes south until you get to Point Betsie Lighthouse.
