The Ultimate Guide to Grand Haven: 50 Things to do on a Staycation
10. Take an Educational Tour on a Grand Haven Trolley Tour
Summer marks the revival of Grand Haven, from the boutiques that line Washington Avenue to the Musical Fountain and grand celebrations like Coast Guard Festival! While traffic can become a hassle, a favored means of transportation that returns each season is the Grand Haven Trolley, an extension of Harbor Transit. The trolley runs Memorial Day through Labor Day from 11AM – 10PM, seven days a week with pick-up locations designated by green signs at Chinook Pier, along the Boardwalk, at the State Park, The Bookman, and Pfaff Pharmacy. If you happen to spot the trolley along your travels, don’t be afraid to flag them down anywhere along the route – they’re always happy to pick up new travelers.
Boarding the Trolley you’ll be taken back to a simpler time, with fares remaining low (ranging from free to $1.50 per person). As the driver navigates along the waterfront and through downtown, you’ll enjoy a historical narrative pointing out some interesting and often overlooked facets of Grand Haven. Each year the Trolley is enjoyed by hundreds of people, and has become a vacation tradition to many. Take this unique trip during your Staycation, and you might just fall in love with Grand Haven all over again.
