Grand Haven, Michigan: Family-Friendly Beach Town on Lake Michigan
In Grand Haven, you can kayak on Lake Michigan in the morning, watch the sunset as you eat an ice-cream cone on a boardwalk in the evening, and then watch the biggest musical fountain in the world light up the sky after nightfall. The blend of attractions you’ll find in and around the lake is ideal for traveling with kids, whether you’re building multistory sandcastles on the beach in summer or sledding down snow-covered sand dunes in winter. Grand Haven’s most popular sledding spot is Mulligan’s Hollow, where skiers and snowboarders zoom down a snow-filled bowl. Just a few blocks from Mulligan’s Hollow is downtown Grand Haven. It’s full of historical 19th-century buildings and shops that sell knickknacks, antiques, and kites that you can fly over the beach.
