I’m back with the last of our Michigan trip recaps. I’ve already shown you my grandparents’ house, the world’s largest Christmas store, and Michigan’s little Bavaria. The last day trip we took was to one of my favorite places in the world, Grand Haven, Michigan. Grand Haven is this quaint little beach town on the shore of Lake Michigan. It has a great beach, a pier with lighthouses, and an adorable downtown with lots of unique shops.
We always go in the summer, so this was my first trip in April. Let’s just say it wasn’t exactly beach weather. When we arrived it was in the 40s and foggy. We made the trip in just under two hours, and when we got there around noon lunch was our first priority. Old Boys’ Brewhouse was the perfect way to kick off the day.
An order of fried pickles and a few craft beers warmed us right up.
After lunch we drove over to the Grand Haven State Park to show the boys the lighthouse.
The waves were pretty crazy and the water was FREEZING. Sometimes when it storms the waves go over the top of the outer lighthouse.
I had to.
I love Michigan (especially Grand Haven) and can’t wait to go back soon. Hopefully when it’s warmer :)
