Under construction/repair in 2017-18, but this is a favorite destination in Grand Haven. Take a walk, watch people, watch boats in the channel, catch a fabulous sunset.

We visited the pier and lighthouse during the recent snowstorm and arctic blast. Everything was covered in snow and ice, and the harbor was completely filled with huge, floating, ice balls. It was gorgeous and worth braving the frigid temperatures to view the snow-and-ice covered...More

Most of the pier was blocked off as it gets too windy to be on the pier, making it unsafe. We did see a few people out surfing on the waves in the lake. Watched the sunset behind the light house. Very cool place!!!
