ABOUT GRAND HAVEN
The Grand Haven area and Northern Ottawa County is one of the most historically significant areas in the state of Michigan, with its history dating back over 300 years ago. Experience the history of the area by taking a walk along our 1.5 mile boardwalk that spans from downtown Grand Haven to Lake Michigan. At the end of the boardwalk you’ll see two lighthouses that have guided ships for years and whose silhouettes at sunset make the perfect backdrop for photos and memories. Some of the favorite activities and attractions for visitors and locals alike include: the variety of locally owned shops, unique and delicious restaurants, boat and trolley rides, a one-of-a kind Musical Fountain that puts on a nightly show from Memorial Day to Labor Day, historical train rides in Coopersville, and free concerts in Spring Lake at Mill Point Park and in Grand Haven at Central Park during the summer months. Be sure to take time to enjoy the great outdoor activities and parks that people have treasured for decades when visiting the area. Rosy Mound Natural Area is a highly wooded dune preserve with a boardwalk that winds through the woods with 1,000 feet of stairs up and down the dunes. Go north of Grand Haven to enjoy P.J. Hoffmaster State Park and the Gillette Visitor Center. The park and visitor center offer plenty of hiking trails, views of Lake Michigan and the dunes, educational displays are ideal for enjoying a beautiful day in nature.
