Things to Do in Harbor Springs
Where to start? We have it all! Our many year ‘round events and cultural opportunities are varied and delightful. Each Thursday night in the summer, Street Musique brings music to the streets of downtown Harbor Springs. Night of the Arts in mid July, July 4th, Ugotta Regatta, Cars in the Park, the Odawa Pow Wow, the Farmers Market, Brew Fest, Blissfest, the Young Americans, Main Street Farmers Market, the Taste of Harbor Springs, Festival of the Book, Christmas Tree Lighting, Holiday Open House, Chili Cookoff, and the Great Lakes Glass Pumpkin Patch are just some of many activities that take place in Harbor Springs.
Walk along the docks with an ice cream cone, sit on the waterfront for Monday night concerts by the community band in July and August, hit the beach at Zoll Street or Zorn Park, or take a ride on the historic Pointer Boat. Rent a bike, kayak or stand up paddleboard. Enroll the kids in the Little Traverse Sailors sailing school. The area is dotted with artesian wells, thus the name Harbor Springs. Enjoy the cool, fresh water and know that you are in a very special place.
Just Beach It
Two beaches in downtown Harbor Springs! This is the place for a beach day. The Zorn Park Beach has a swim platform, lifeguards (in the summer), and a bath house while the tiny Zoll Street is often the place for happy dogs (and owners).
Just a few miles from downtown just off M-119 is Thorne Swift Nature Preserve with two boardwalk paths to the beach. Good Hart’s Middle Village Beach, Cross Village’s beach and the spectacular Sturgeon Bay north of Cross Village along with the Petoskey State Park between Harbor Springs and Petoskey offer days and days of beach possibilities!
Tunnel of Trees
The Tunnel of Trees, the M-119 Heritage Route traveling from Harbor Springs to Cross Village, is a stunning display of northern hardwoods located very close to the roadway, creating the feeling of traveling through a tunnel. The route is a favorite of Northern Michigan visitors because of its rolling terrain, stunning vistas, and dramatic turns and curves.
Designated a state Scenic Heritage Route, the views along this 27.5 mile drive are among the most stunning outlooks of Lake Michigan in the state. While this drive is spectacular all year ‘round, the fall colors along the route bring people back year after year to experience the glorious foliage.
