Heaven lies right between South Haven, MI & Saugatuck, MI…
The Boardwalk is situated in one of the most beautiful and vibrant areas on the Lakeshore and is near two charming cities that are bustling with activity. A five minute scenic trip south will bring you to South Haven, a beachfront city that can’t be beat when it comes to entertainment and dining. Head to South Haven for a day of shopping in the shopping district, enjoy a meal at one of the 50 restaurants, then head back to Boardwalk to set up your beach chairs and catch the sunset from your own private beach!
South Haven is also home to the famous South Haven Lighthouse, a historic monument that is a key feature of the shoreline of the town. You can catch a movie during the Waterfront Film Festival, buy local produce at the farmers market, and stroll through the quaint downtown, enjoying the beautiful sights and fun events going on in South Haven all year round. You can learn more about the city’s rich maritime history at Harborfest and enjoy the bounty of the local farmers’ labor at the National Blueberry Festival. South Haven is a lively town waiting for you to explore and is sure to make your summer on the lakeshore memorable!
Just north of The Boardwalk is Saugatuck. Often called “The Art Coast”, it is a picturesque town known for its exciting art community, art galleries, and great summer nightlife. Walk the boardwalk along the Kalamazoo River and enjoy the scenic beauty and unique collection of shops, galleries, theaters, restaurants and breweries around every corner.
The Boardwalk is not a summer-only destination – it’s a great location during the fall and winter months, too! In the fall, enjoy the beautiful changing colors of the leaves on a scenic drive along the lakeshore or take a tour of the many local vineyards and orchards as they prepare for the change of season. The winter brings some of the most peaceful, quiet days in Michigan – a great time to slow down and take it all in. Looking for a little more adventure? Some of Michigan’s most popular ski resorts and cross country trails are just a short drive away.
Whatever the season, the Boardwalk is the ideal location to enjoy everything that wonderful southwest Michigan has to offer!
