South Haven was a very cool town. The Beaches were fantastic for our family. The water was very cold but did feel very refreshing when took a dip. The area wasn't very crowded and with the exception of Sat night we had no problem finding a place to eat.
The only downfall was the house we rented. Everything in it was old and uncomfortable. It was a tab bit further out than we would have wanted to stay but it worked. I am sure we will venture back up there at some point. I would recommend taking a trip up to South Haven to anybody who wants a reasonable trip that isn't too bad of a drive.
Do you know what the water temp was? Just curious. Lake Mich is cold by most standards. I go a bit further north than South Haven and if it gets to upper 60s it's "swimmable" . Lower 70s is to die for. If I was in Waikiki, my standards would be different
