Grand Haven Makes ‘Ultimate Summer Weekend Road Trips’ List
Despite the snowy, slushy weekend we just had in West Michigan, we are definitely creeping closer to summer. With the weather warming, it's time to think about what to do with those summer weekends.
Business Insider has compiled a list of the top 9 Ultimate Weekend Road Trips to take this summer-- and Grand Haven made the list!
Here's Business Insider's praise for Grand Haven:
Most days are spent swimming in Lake Michigan's turquoise water, but if you want a break from the beach, the charming town has plenty to offer. Follow the locals to the divey Morning Star Cafe, and make sure to order the Hawaiian ham crepe (thinly sliced ham, onion, cilantro and habanero cheese topped with homemade pineapple salsa and honey mustard hollandaise) with a side of chorizo hash browns. For lunch, suck down plates of fresh oysters at The Grand Seafood & Oyster Bar, then walk three blocks to Snug Harbor and refresh with a martini on the rooftop deck. And in the evening, there's no better place to catch the sunset than on the pier attached to the picture-perfect Grand Haven State Park lighthouse."
Go Grand Haven! The West Michigan beach town can add this to recent honor of being voted the No. 2 Best Freshwater Beach in the U.S. by USA Today readers.
