  • As tourist attractions in South Haven, Michigan go, this one is a personal favorite of mine. Specifically, this is due to its being home to 'Friends Good Will', an authentic replica of a tall ship that sailed around the Great Lakes for a few years in the early 1800s. I've sailed on this ship on several visits and always enjoy it.
  • Great place to visit for history/maritime buffs. The museum isn't huge, but they have some very interesting displays and photos. Also, do not miss the chance to take one of the boat trips! We did the one that goes up the black river, called the Lindy Lou. Our captain, Heather did an excellent job and had tons of historical info on the river and South Haven.
