Activities/Attractions: Nestled along the deepest harbor in the Great Lakes lies the tiny waterfront community of Harbor Springs. A bustling tourist destination since before the turn of the last century, Harbor Springs and its surrounding areas offer delight and amusement to visitors and uncomplicated tranquility to residents.

Originally settled by Native Americans during the eighteenth century, a vibrant business community assures continued growth and development. Local artisans, musicians and thespians offer an array of cultural activities including gallery exhibitions, concerts, and theatre performances.

More than a century ago, Harbor Springs became well-known as a pristine resort community. The sheer beauty and tranquility of this "small town" are the reasons many people spent their childhoods here, returned with their children, and are now entertaining their grandchildren here.

For those who are looking for outdoor activities, our area boasts the best in sailing, golf, skiing, sailboarding, cycling, boating, fishing, tennis and more. And if you're in the mood for something more relaxing, enjoy our outstanding restaurants and lodging facilities, or take a stroll through downtown, and explore our outstanding shops and boutiques, offering the latest in fashion, art and antiques from around the world, unique gifts, home furnishings and more.

As a vacation destination, we offer a personal guarantee that you’ll never run out of things to do while visiting. We’re also happy to say that if total relaxation and seclusion is what you’re after, we can definitely accommodate that as well. Starry nights, moonlit waters and lapping shorelines are amenities that we’re happy to offer at no extra charge.

Using Harbor Springs as your home base, you can travel south as far as beautiful Traverse City and north through the state's Upper Peninsula all within a day's time.  No matter what you choose for your vacation activities, we're sure you'll enjoy yourself while visiting.
