Pets

It can be difficult (and expensive) to travel with animals but luckily Southwest Michigan is a very pet-friendly place. You can find many hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, wineries, breweries, trails, beaches, farms, and shops that will welcome your pets as they would any other member of your family.

Sharknado by Beth Mandarino

There’s something fishy about St. Joseph, Mich., now through Sept. 21. In this Lake Michigan resort town, you can see 19 fish and shark sculptures lining the downtown sidewalks and below the bluff, plus one shark sculpture at the New Buffalo Welcome Center on eastbound I-94. They are part of the Fishing for Fun in St. Joseph public art display.
