Each month our social media fans share and tag us in some of the most phenomenal images of the Grand Haven area on our social media pages! May began colder than expected but ended with the beautiful weather we all look forward to here  in Grand Haven, MI. Here are some of our favorite photos from the month of May!

Foggy Grand Haven Pier 

The weather didn’t start off as warm as us Michiganders had hoped for this May after our infamous winters. However, the fog rolled in thick mid-May and Steve Damstra captured this perfectly timed photo with heavy fog rolling in across the pier. Thank you Steve Damstra for sharing this photo with us!

Dogs on the Pier

It’s always difficult to choose which sunset photos to share due to the abundance of gorgeous Grand Haven pier photos that are shared with us. However, this one stood out as these two adorable puppies took a stroll down the pier. Thank you to Instagramer @robertekoke for sharing this photo with us!

Sunset in Hammocks 

Our second choice for sunset photos was captured by Facebook user Jasmine Hornberger DC. This may be one of the most relaxing and enjoyable ways to enjoy a beautiful setting sun on the famous Grand Haven pier.

Nighttime Lighthouse 

Not only are the sunset photos some our favorites but the difficult night shots always make for a unique perspective of the pier. This beautiful photo was captured by Facebook user Todd Maertz – thanks for sharing Todd!

Musical Fountain 

Along with the warmer weather came the start of the season for the spectacular Musical Fountain. The shows are different every night and feature mesmerizing displays of synchronized water and modern LED lights all synchronized to music. This photo was captured by Instagramer @lalondemaggie16, thanks for using the tag #visitgrandhaven!

Kite Fest 

The Great Lakes Kite Festival in mid-May is always an enjoyable time here in Grand Haven. It’s extraordinary how many kites can be seen flying in the sky above Grand Haven State Park. Thanks for sharing this photo with us Twitter user Marnie Lambitz!
