As the region warms up, Great Lakes residents are spending more and more time near the lakes, whether it’s running, biking, picking up trash, or just relaxing. So we wanted to create an iconic, family-friendly soundtrack for our favorite summer activity: enjoying the Great Lakes.

Featured on this playlist are the Great Lakes artists and songs, with a our favorite classic H20 songs thrown in the mix. Follow the playlist on Spotify and jam out to the tunes of the Great Lakes.
