  • The mag has come out with their 2021 Family Travel Awards, revealing their top 20 U.S. getaways for families.

The magazine picked Grand Haven as the BEST BEACH TOWN ON A LAKE.

Located on Lake Michigan, this charming small town is the beach mecca of the Midwest. Thanks to a revitalization project, its state-park beach doubled in size last summer. The playground at the 7-acre waterfront North Beach Park makes it a local family fave. The town's Musical Fountain, which has a 25-minute light show nightly at dusk, has been wowing kids since the 1960s.
