In 1833, the U.S. government granted Jay R. Monroe a land patent for 65 acres of land along the golden shores of Lake Michigan. Originally sought after for the natural resources such as timber; South Haven started with humble beginnings. Now over 180 years later the "Jewel of Lake Michigan" is a thriving town with a large tourism industry. Over time South Haven has seen many changes and updates. At one time, it was a major hub for passenger freight liners and cargo carrying vessels.
South Haven also been a favorite spot for those trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities that surround South West Michigan. Many choose our town for the Lake and the beaches, while others prefer the scenic country surroundings that happen to only be a few short minutes from the downtown area.
The Downtown area is a colorful lively place when summer is in full swing. You may want to visit all the fine dinning restaurants, quaint stores, and street vendors (during events). In the evening you may want to relax and take a quiet stroll on the sun kissed beach just listening to the waves break. If the nightlife is more your taste then you may enjoy one of our many bar and grills. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some local bands performing on the stage.
