Everyone knows that running is a great way to get in shape, but going to the gym can be a tiresome task. Instead of running on a treadmill, why not get some fresh air, and go on a run outdoors! The Grand Haven area has a wide variety of running paths and trails that showcase the area’s beauty. There’s no better way to experience this beauty then by getting outdoors and going for a run!
