The quaint waterfront community of Harbor Springs has had a magnetic appeal to visitors since the turn of the century. It offers an inviting array of art galleries, culinary attractions and the deepest fresh-water harbor in the Great Lakes. Situated on Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay, Harbor Springs is a place that feels just right. It’s where time slows down; natural beauty is a part of all four seasons, and the community is warm and welcoming.
Harbor Springs is such a popular destination because it offers so many events and activities for all ages to experience, explore and enjoy. The list of things to do is almost without limit. Along with golf, swimming, boating, hiking and biking, there is a calendar full of festivals, as well as gallery exhibitions, concerts and theater performances.
One of the most popular attractions in Harbor Springs is the M-119 Tunnel of Trees, an icon for the area’s natural beauty. This stunning drive along bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan is a four-season, colored filled experience—trillium in the spring, green trees and blue water in the summer, vibrant fall foliage, and winter white. Enjoy all four seasons in this charming resort town along the shores of Little Traverse Bay.
