From rides on a historic, hand-carved carousel to farmers markets, arts and culture, parks, beaches, and a pedestrian-friendly downtown, this charming destination offers eclectic experiences for everyone. History lovers will discover fascinating places from the St. Joseph North Pier Lighthouse to the permanent exhibits showcasing years gone by at the St. Joseph-Benton Harbor and the Great Lakes Region.

Plus, the area is also home to quite a few wineries and brewing companies to enjoy drinks.
