Have a hammock? Here are five great spots to hang out by



has become so popular among Western Michigan University students that the school is incorporating an indoor hammocking lounge in the new student union that’s currently under construction. Hammocking typically involves hanging a hammock between two trees in a public space and lying in it, and this trend among the college-age set is moving into the mainstream. No backyard? No problem. The portability of today's compact, lightweight hammocks allows hammockers to make parks, preserves or any public green space into a place to "hang" with friends, read or even nap. Here are five favorite places where I like to hang out:

Asylum Lake Preserve 3836 S. Drake Road

With an abundance of trees in this beautiful nature preserve, there are countless spots to hang your hammock. You can hang near the water for a scenic view of Asylum Lake or off the trails amidst the oaks and grasses. No matter where you go, there is a guaranteed scenic view.
