In and around Grand Haven, it’s all about the water. Lake Michigan washes over Grand Haven’s golden beaches, part of an unbroken strand extending 500 miles along the state’s western shore. Th e Grand River channel flows along the edge of downtown. Linking Lake Michigan and the Grand River, this forms a waterway popular with boaters and sport anglers. North of town, Spring Lake draws outdoor enthusiasts to its sparkling inland waters. Every season brings its own charm, but when temperatures rise, visitors and locals head to the beach. Grand Haven State Park attracts day-trippers and campers who stay overnight in spots nestled in the sand along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Nearby, Grand Haven City Beach and North Beach Park provide easy access to the same golden sand and surf. Head a bit farther south to Kirk Park, or to P.J. Hoffmaster State Park north of town, and you’ll discover beaches embraced by gently rolling dunes and towering pine and hardwood trees. The Grand Haven area offers swimming, boating, kiteboarding, paddleboarding — even surfing. Families build sandcastles and fly kites. Young people perfect their suntans and compete in games of beach volleyball. The centerpiece of Grand Haven is its lighthouses, two beacons that have watched over the harbor for more than a century. Spending time along the lighthouse pier is among Grand Haven’s most popular pastimes.
