Harbor Shores Golf Cl

The reinvention of a former factory town is no more apparent in Benton Harbor than in the city's west side golf resort. Constructed on fallow lands, left barren and polluted at the collapse of one of the community's biggest early 20th century industry centers, Harbor Shores has rehabilitated the west side of town, drawing avid golfers to the tees of this Jack Nicklaus-designed course. A permanent residential community has grown up around the course including luxury homes, condos, and cottages, fine dining establishments, and upscale shopping venues while the course itself features 18 holes of championship golf.

Old School Blues Fest

Generations of African-American families have called Benton Harbor home, with many tracing family roots in Michigan to the nation's Great Migration of the post-Civil War era. This rich heritage influences contemporary Benton Harbor through social and cultural events like the annual Old School Blues Fest. For more than a decade, Jean Klock Park hosted the Benton Harbor Blues or Soul-Blues Festival, but during the community's darkest days, the Blues were conspicuously absent. Reborn in 2011 as the Old School Blues Fest, Benton Harbor's summer music celebration brings national headliners and local talent to the stage at Jean Klock Park's beach.

City Markets and Area

Benton Harbor's agricultural heritage is alive and well today, with the century-old Blossomtime Festival celebrating annual orchard harvests and multiple city markets displaying the abundance of local crops. The city's 25-acre Fruit Market, in operation for more than 150 years, sells to individual consumers and the food industry. Harbor Market on Main Street features local produce, fresh flowers, arts and crafts, and fresh baked goods every Friday from June to Labor Day, but be sure to check out the area's orchards and farm markets, too, including Heritage Orchards, Pumpkins Galore, Extraordinary Berry, and Nye's Apple Barn & Farm Market to name just a few.
