About Benton Harbor
Known as the twin to its resort-town sister, St. Joseph, Benton Harbor provides extensive opportunities to live, work and play while soaking in Lake Michigan’s sparkling views.
The views, beaches and boat access are just a few highlights of this Southwest Michigan locale. From exploring the St. Joseph River shoreline or the “Makers Trail” to playing a round of golf on the world-class Jack Nicklaus-designed Harbor Shores Golf Course, there are plenty of ways to stay busy and enjoy all that Benton Harbor has to offer.
Benton Harbor has also been revitalized to include shopping, galleries, restaurants and pubs. The Arts District of Benton Harbor is home to a wide range of artists and artworks integrated throughout the community.
Housing in Benton Harbor offers something for nearly every lifestyle, ranging from new construction on the golf course, to condo buildings on the water, to beachfront estates.
Benton Harbor Area Schools serves the area, which includes K-12 education.
Interstates 94 and 196 provide easy access from Benton Harbor to Chicago, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Michigan City. Amtrak offers daily service to Chicago, leaving from nearby St. Joseph. The Twin Cities Area Transportation Authority provides local bus service throughout Benton Harbor.
