April - June

The Summer buzz may get all the glory, but Spring is a fantastic time to experience South Haven and the rest of West Michigan. While it might not be beach whether, a plethora of things to do awaits you on Michigan Gold Coast.

Wineries and cider mills are in the midst of finishing up the previous year's batches, making it a great time to take a tour and taste their hardwork. You'll also find many distilleries up and down our coast. Musuems, galleries, and other exhibits (most of which are open all year-round) offer a nice respite when the rain sneaks in. There are many wonderful eating experiences to be had here in South Haven, the rest of West Michigan, and the city of Grand Rapids, which is only a short drive away.

Visit us in the Spring for a taste of South Haven before the crowds roll in!
