The Heritage Museum and Cultural CenterFor the next couple of posts, I will be writing about museums in Southwestern Michigan.
 
The Heritage Museum and Cultural Center in Saint Joseph, Michigan is a unique gem in the community.  Museum exhibits, library, archive, gorgeous banquet facilities, and fascinating public programs and events provide various ways for guests to experience the organization.

St Joe for Kids photo Joshua NowickiSaint Joseph, Michigan is a wonderful place for children.  Museums, beaches, camps, ice cream and treats, along with a variety of additional indoor and outdoor entertainment await you during your next visit.
 
All Aboard! for public art in St. Joseph.  This year, the city of St. Joseph has organized a delightful collection of decorated planes, trains and helicopters.  Many of the sculptures invite children to climb aboard, ring a bell and imagine that they are on a fun journey.

Saint Joseph, MichiganThere is something special about lighthouses that make them the irresistible superstars of the Great Lakes.    

Designed to emit light through a system of lamps and lenses, lighthouses have long been used as an aid to navigation.  Over the years, the number of operational lighthouses has declined yet they remain powerful symbols in our lives.  Embodying strength, hope and guidance, they preserver and shine strong even during a storm.

Harbor Shores Nature & Fitness TrailsHarbor Shores is known for its world class golf course, but there is so much more to enjoy.   With 12 miles of paved and unpaved trails open to the public, everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a walk, hike, bike ride, etc. through wetlands, past expertly manicured greens and right up to the beach at Jean Klock Park. 

Harbor Shores offers several different parking lots along the trail system; maps of the trail system are conveniently located online and at several of the parking locations.  Two of the parking locations provide the public with access to the Paw Paw River for boats, canoes and kayaks.  If you are interested in exploring the river on the water, Harbor Shores offers a Canoe & Kayak Rental with a private launch on the north bank of the St. Joseph River.
