Love the pier and the lighthouse. Go out and soak up the vibes, whenever I get the chance. No nicer place than Grand Haven, for a wonderful, relaxing vacation. Everything that Key West offers, except for beautiful, warm weather in November.

Walked the pier in early November and was a bit cold. They have removed the metal structures and laid new concrete. Very nice and easy to get to from downtown. About a 10 minute walk

Busy with people and fishermen along the pier. Please use caution if the water is wavy and splashing onto the pier.

Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier is a nice enough pier that makes for a nice walk and offers some reasonable views. This is in no way stunning though and is not a must visit for those coming from outside the area.

Nice place to take a walk, watch the people and lake. There is a great ice cream place and flavored ice place on the walk way.

The Pier was being renovated during our visit, but the walk there is still a beautiful one. When it's done, I'm sure it will be even better!

Not sure the legality but I've seen lots of dogs out there. I'd use a leash to be safe.
