Nicknamed the “Riviera of the Midwest” because of its lovely location along Lake Michigan, St. Joseph is a place to enjoy the simple pleasures. 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. Since this town is actually the largest producer of non-citrus fruit in the country, there’s apple picking, farmers' markets, freshly baked pies and other goodies to enjoy. Plus, the area is also home to quite a few wineries and brewing companies to enjoy drinks.
Open 365 days a year, the Silver Beach Carousel is a popular attraction for kids of all ages with its twinkling lights, beautiful figures and whimsical music. Nearby, Silver Beach County Park offers access to a public pier and scenic beachfront, attracting sun-worshippers in the summer months.
Over at the Krasl Art Center, colorful sculptures from Dale Chihuly, Richard Hunt and other artists grace the space indoors and out, while the Box Factory for the Arts in the old William Bros. Paper Box. Mfg. Building regularly hosts shows and other cultural gatherings.
Another local landmark worth a visit is Nye’s Apple Barn, which has been turning out fresh produce, jams, jellies, honey and vinegar since 1968.

— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— The great thing about AllTheRooms is their ability to cover all bases. If you are travelling solo, with a partner, friends or even a larger family. There is something there for everyone and that is a hugely powerful tool that I believe it boasts moreso than competitors.
