If you have not been to this little corner of Southwest Michigan, you are missing out! Your momma
always told you that good things come in small packages, and this could not be more true when it comes to the offerings in Harbor Country. Located along a fifteen mile stretch of Lake Michigan, Harbor Country offers fabulous events, great restaurants, luxurious lodging, art galleries, theaters, wineries, farmers markets, beaches and much, much, more.
A favorite event of the area for the summer is The Ship and Shore Festival, held August 12-14, 2011.
This festival is in its 27th year and each year is more fabulous than the previous. It includes art displays, live music, wine-tasting and food offerings from its local restaurateurs. Also included is a lighted boat parade and fireworks as a highlight of the very exciting weekend. Activities abound all weekend long for every member of the family.
Excellent eats are around every corner in Harbor Country. The must-visit list includes: Rosie’s (egg-cellent breakfast), Redamak’s (legendary burgers), Red Arrow Roadhouse (fabulous ribs) and Bentwood Tavern (gourmet comfort cuisine). So much more unbelievable cuisine is available and can be found on the Harbor Country dining page.
For some fun why not stop by the Four Winds Casino Resort? Exciting game play and onsite childcare make for a great family friendly excursion.
At the end of a busy day, The Harbor Grand Hotel is THE choice for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. Located on the waterfront, they offer the best personal service, elegant guest rooms and simply the best choice for a stay located in the heart of Harbor Country.
Plan your Harbor Country visit now, it will be a destination you return to time and time again!
