The holiday season is enchanting in St. Joseph, Michigan. The air is crisp and invigorating, the light sparkles on the snow and ice and the decorations are dazzling. If you bundle up and take a walk around this Victorian-era downtown you will be greeted with some wonderful views and postcard-perfect photo opportunities.

When temperatures drop, you may be tempted to curl up at home, but you won’t want to miss all the fun that Southwest Michigan has to offer! We asked locals to list some of their favorite winter activities and traditions. When you’re ready to come out of hibernation, we have plenty to keep you entertained throughout the holiday season. Trade in your wool blanket for a countryside blanketed in freshly fallen snow and end your day socializing in front of a roaring fire.

Today we are taking you through a little unknown fact about Southwest Michigan. You might know us for our beaches, our golf courses but we also have an amazing art scene.

Arts District

There is always something new to see, experience, learn and taste in the Benton Harbor Arts District. When I moved to Southwest Michigan several years ago, there was a solid core of arts organizations in the district. Over the last few years, the area has increased its appeal with a variety of other businesses and restaurants. Moreover, it is just around the corner from the Harbor Shores Golf Club which hosts the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship every other year.
