Grand Haven, Michigan

4 posts in this topic

Grand Haven sits at the mouth of the Grand River, where it enters Lake Michigan. It's a beautiful little city, and is only 20 miles West of Grand Rapids and sits basically in the Grand Rapids/Holland/Muskegon Metro area. It gets it nickname Coastguard City USA because it's one of a few Coast Guard stations serving Lake Michigan, and has a long history of Coast Guard service.

Spray from a cigarette boat heading out (hard to describe the sound/feel of the low roar, even from the beach):

All the large cigarette boats are in GH for the Smoke on the Water event today (Saturday). Over 100 boats race to different port cities to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation.

The Sheriff's a little out-gunned in this town. You can see why Michigan is THE reigning Boat Capital of the World.
