Understand

Once a predominately rural area, in the past few decades Harbor Country has experienced significant tourist growth as travellers from nearby Chicago visit the area. The main highways of Harbor Country are lined with art galleries, farm stands, and trendy restaurants catering to this crowd. Many new cottages are also being built in the region due to the strong vacation home market. In addition to being a destination in its own right, Harbor Country is also a popular stopping point for vacationers heading to St. Joseph, Holland, or Grand Rapids.

Get out

Indiana lies just over the border to the south, and the eastern fringes of Chicagoland aren't much farther away. Alternatively, to the north are a seemingly endless series of Lake Michigan Beachtowns.
