South Haven MI is cute town with a quaint downtown area. There is a lighthouse at the end of the main street (Phoenix St) and it has a really nice beach area close to the lighthouse. You can walk out to the lighthouse and watch various vessels coming and going on the river. It has lots of interesting shops, eateries,... More

Each lighthouse is beautiful and special in it's own way. Plus the towns where they are located are gems. It's like going on your own private treasure hunt. You never know what you're going to find.

No visit to South Haven is complete without a trip to the big red lighthouse on the south beach. It is easily accessible via the long concrete pier and attracts tons of tourists. The best time to go is early morning or late at night (or during the week) if you want to have the lighthouse all to yourself!

The water on the lake side, was so clear. We saw lots of fish on our way out to the lighthouse. Fog was setting in. How beautiful!

If you're visiting South Harbor, plan to spend at least one evening at this lighthouse watching the sunset. It's absolutely breathtaking.
