This self-guided tour leads visitors along the bluff overlooking historic St. Joseph, incorporated in 1834. Beginning at the corner of State and Port Streets, the tour takes you past several monuments, pointing out interesting historical facts, from the landing of Robert de LaSalle in 1679 to the well-known poems of local-born poet Ben King. The tour includes a bandshell with free Sunday concerts in the summer, the beautiful century-old "Maids of the Mist" fountain, and an eight-ton Revolutionary War cannon and cannon balls. Park benches, swings, brick roads, "Coney Island" lights and flowers planted along wide walkways add to the charm of this tour overlooking Lake Michigan.
