Having Fun on a Rainy Day

While it's a great notion that it's always sunny in West Michigan, sometimes, the truth hits hard. And it's cold, and wet. So what do you do then? Since it's Michigan, you just wait a little while and it should all blow over! So while you wait for the sun to come back out, take in a movie, paint a picture, or learn about South Haven's roots as a tourist community.
