Gifts of Time
If you can only afford to spend a day together, Southwest Michigan will make every minute enchanting. Winter is a beautiful time to walk along our beaches, snowshoe our dunes, walk or cross-country ski our nature trails or take an evening stroll through the lights in Lake Bluff Park in St. Joseph. While you’re here, do make time to warm up together with a luxurious spa treatment at The Spa at Harbor Shores or Affinity Salon and Spa. And continue relaxing at our craft breweries and wineries that are just minutes away.
Take your sweetie to a show that will melt both your hearts.
