boating lake michiganCovert Park is bordered to the west by beautiful Lake Michigan. Just to the north you will find the quaint city of South Haven. South Haven is steeped in maritime history. You can charter a fishing vessel and try your luck against the King Salmon, Lake Trout, Perch or Steelhead. Even if the fish are not biting the view is magnificent. If the fishing is not your thing, but you still want the views, try a romantic sunset dinner cruise. South Haven has great weekend festivals such as Harborfest and the National Blueberry Festival.

sunset lake michiganSouthwest Michigan is located in the fertile fruit belt. There are many strawberry, blueberry, apple, peach, and cherry orchards within a few minutes drive that will allow you to "pick-your-own." If you do not want the work involved, stop by one of the many roadside fruit stands and bring home a bushel of fresh fruit or in season vegetables. Saugatuck, and Douglas (both a few miles north of South Haven) are a shopper's paradise. Classy, quirky, and just plain fun shops line the streets of these classic harbor towns.
