Dusk to Dark (8 p.m.-10 p.m.)After-Dinner Activities
Watching the sunset over Lake Michigan and eating ice cream is a perfect summer evening pairing. Pier Peddler is on the boardwalk near Escanaba Park. Grab a cone of your favorite flavor, a souvenir T-shirt, and don’t forget to ring the Coast Guard bell that hangs nearby. Sweet Temptations, on Jackson Street less than a mile off the shoreline, serves up its own homemade ice cream in homemade waffle cones. The scoops are BIG. Try the salted caramel.
If you’re still near the boardwalk after dark, catch the 20-minute synchronized water, light and music wonderment of the Grand Haven Musical Fountain. The best view is from Waterfront Stadium.
