Grand-Haven is a major tourist town that sits along the banks of the Grand River and the picturesque shoreline of Lake Michigan in northern Ottawa County. Here's just a sample of what you'll find in Grand Haven: a beautiful waterfront that stretches from downtown to the Grand Haven Lighthouse. Established in 1839, the lighthouse has two lights on the south pier, both painted red, that are connected by a lighted catwalk that also connects them to the shore and the Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is two and a half miles along the harbor that is lined with great little shops, restaurants and a marina. It's a nice place to spend an afternoon walking, shopping and people and boat watching, or you can charter a boat for a day of fishing on Lake Michigan. Fishing is also available off the pier, and other activities in Grand Haven include swimming, hiking, biking, or just hanging out at one of the beautiful beaches that stretch along the West Michigan shoreline. Grand Haven is known for its' "singing sands," a phenomenon that occurs only on the Lake Michigan beaches along West Michigan. When walking on the sand, it makes slight "utterings" and "squeaks" beneath your feet, similar to "singing." And, if you are visiting Grand Haven in December, not to be missed is their "Classic Christmas Celebration," with their gaily-lighted streets, Christmas parade and tree lighting and classic homes tour.

Grand Haven Weather & Climate

Southwest Michigan has four seasons that are greatly influenced by Lake Michigan. Summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the lake chills the air near the Earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. The lake also helps modify summer high temperatures, making the state a popular vacation spot. Autumn is too cool for swimming, but is a great time for other outdoor attractions. Although the Upper Peninsula is cooler, the temperature ranges in the far northern and far southern cities do not differ excessively in Michigan. What is known as lake effect snow squalls brings locally heavy snows to the area. Michigan is on the fringe of the Midwest tornado belt, but sees less of this activity than other parts of the country.
