The lake is also host to sports like surfing and water skiing. Back on land, active travelers can play on one of the town's championship golf courses or enjoy a round of tennis. For some pampering after a long day, the local salons and day spas are ideal. Alternatively, take a tour of one of the nearby stunning vineyards, and take part in tasting sessions.

South Haven is one of the blueberry capitals of America, making it the perfect spot to host the National Blueberry Festival -- just one of the annual events and fairs the town holds. The festival takes place in August, and is one of the country's oldest continuously-running fruit festivals.
