Nice walk pre-dinner in South Haven. Not a whole lot to see here but I'm glad we went. South Haven is just such a lovely town.

Be sure to stop by the main lighthouse in South Haven as part of your overall trip. You will get the true feell of Lake Michigan, especially if you walk to the end of the pier.

I am not aware that you can go in. There is a door but it is locked. I would assume no general public entrance. It is a VERY small lighthouse so there would not be a lot to see anyway.
