Grand HavenUnited States of America

Lighthouses twinkle over the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan and parks stretch out along the Grand River in this charming historical city. 

Grand Haven is famous for its freshwater beaches. Spend warm days relaxing on the sand or dining in the Marina restaurants. This is the perfect destination for a laid-back summer vacation.

Walk along the boardwalk that juts out onto Lake Michigan at the mouth of the river. Take photos with the picturesque red lighthouses in the background and move closer for a better look. Visit in winter to see the structures covered in wind-blown ice formations.

Put on a swimsuit and go down to the water’s edge to find out why Grand Haven’s beaches have won so many national awards. Watch surfers catch a wave at Grand Haven State Park or relax on the natural beaches of Kirk Park.

Join a sailing tour to enjoy the sunshine and scenery on the lake and cruise down the river on a small motorboat. Catch your dinner on a fishing charter or do some stand-up paddleboarding. For greater thrills try kiteboarding or guided scuba diving.

Venture into town to admire old architecture and participate in traditional activities. Ride the historic trolleybus that rumbles through town from the Chinook Pier and catch the narrative tour to learn about the city’s history and landmarks.

Stroll through town for shopping at numerous gift stores. Eat freshly caught fish and visit the microbreweries to sample local beer. Walk past the musical fountain in the evening to see the interesting light display.

Time your vacation to coincide with one of the festivals. Pick up Christmas gifts, fine artworks and crafts at the Grand Haven Art Festival in summer. Bring kids to see the Jingle Bell Parade at Christmas time.

Grand Haven provides an unforgettable backdrop to a family vacation.

Enjoy even more activities, with mountain biking, trekking, wine tasting and canoeing available in and around the city.
