Welcome to South Haven
One of Lake Michigan's best waterfront resort communities
"South Haven, home of the Michigan Maritime Museum and
the self-proclaimed Blueberry Capital of the World. The harbor city's National Blueberry Festival attracts thousands of visitors."
Located on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan at the mouth of
the Black River, South Haven Michigan has plenty of sparkling water and sandy beaches to go around. The town offers a wide variety of activities year around, but summer time is when it really shines (literally). Beach fun, fishing, golfing or shopping – South Haven Michigan has it all, including a deep-water harbor.
A harbor that has a rich maritime history.
But we aren't a "single-faceted town," South Haven Michigan has agricultural roots too. So, whether you want to see tall ships or pick your own blueberries, our town is a must see on any vacation "to do list." Visitors quickly see why South Haven Michigan has been called "a gem among small American towns." Getting here is easy; the South Haven area is convenient to Chicago and Detroit off major freeways.
South Haven Michigan is open 365 days a year!
In winter, ski or snowboard at a nearby resort or snuggle up by the fire at a fabulous Bed & Breakfast. In the spring, stroll along the shoreline and see the flowers in bloom, stopping to browse at unique shops along the way. During a summertime trip, take a romantic walk in a vineyard, or pick your own fresh fruits from one of the many farms before heading to the annual blueberry festival! In the fall, enjoy a hayride and some apple cider at a pumpkin farm, or enjoy great food from some of the famous restaurants in town. There is plenty of nightlife too, with concerts, festivals, and live theatre year round.
