About South Haven
Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and award-winning wineries make this Lake Michigan beach town a popular destination.
Surrounded by nature trails, inland lakes, and golf courses, the port city has a quaint downtown, antique stores, berry picking, boating, and breweries.
In the 1900s, South Haven became a resort town and regional tourist draw with its picturesque harbor and beaches as well as entertainment. Today’s visitors will find historic inns, bed and breakfasts, and vacation homes.
Cultural attractions include the South Haven Center for the Arts housed in the 1906 neoclassical Carnegie Library; the Michigan Maritime Museum with the top ship Friends Good Will; and the Michigan Flywheelers Museum, which allows visitors to experience early farm life.
Residents and visitors also enjoy the area’s Centennial Celebration and National Blueberry Festival. The Kal-Haven Trail State Park appeals to recreational fiends such as bicyclists, hikers, and snowmobilers, and the city ice rink provides entertainment during winter months.
