South Haven Michigan is one of the best kept vacation secrets around. Imagine a truly unique town with a quaint scenic harbor, beautiful sandy beaches and fantastic boating and fishing…and you are almost there!
Just west of Kalamazoo, South it is on the banks of the Black River (a romantic vacation favorite) near the east shore of Lake Michigan.
In the summer months, you can enjoy the water sports or one of the eight city parks and three great local golf courses. Visitor love popular Trail State Park for the hiking and biking. It is a 33-mile long trail that travels through wooded areas, and through gorgeous areas of rivers, streams and by family farms. In the winter these same trails are favorites from cross country skiers of all ages.
There are also lots of unique shops and restaurants to visit. One unique favorite is Captain Lou’s Waterfront bar and grille. They have a great casual dining menu and are a summertime favorite.
South Haven also has several annual special events in town, such as the Ice Breaker in February, Harborfest in June and the All Crafts Fair Labor Day Weekend. It is also the "blueberry capital of the world." So grab some blueberries while you are there!
