Many fun and FREE adventures!
It is common knowledge that South Haven has many wonderful beaches. If you park outside of the paid parking areas, you can enjoy them for free. We suggest checking out some of the smaller but less populated beach areas to the north of North Beach.
Visitors and locals alike love many other free locations/activities in South Haven. These include the Kal Haven Trail
, Kids Corner
play area and park, public WiFi
, Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum
, Riverfront Concerts
, and festivals
. Select each name to learn more.
The next festival is right around the corner, the National Blueberry Festival
. While the festival itself is free to attend, it is a busy time for our vacation homes, B&Bs, and hotels. If you are interested in staying in town (which will allow you to make the most of the festival), you should be sure to book your stay sooner than later.
No matter when you chose to visit South Haven there is plenty to do for any budget. If you ever need help finding something, call us. We are happy to help.
The South Haven lighthouse
has quite the history, as do many lighthouses on the Great Lakes. Our lighthouse was originally built closer to shore as a wooden structure in 1871 then rebuilt in the current steel structure in 1903. It wasn't until 1913 that the lighthouse was placed in the current location at the end of the pier.
The lighthouse contains a Fifth Order Fresnel lens and is still connected to the shore by a steel catwalk. The catwalk is one of only four left in the State of Michigan. The lighthouse went through an intense restoration in 2016 and the historical associations has plans for further updates in future years.
Our Adventure PASS is available! What is it? This is one-stop shopping for your vacation. We will book all your activities and give you one Adventure PASS to take with you to each location. This acts as your itinerary and your entrance pass. Let us do the hard work for you. Just tell us what you are interested in. Call us at (269)872-3056.
