Visit Pentwater, a Quaint Harbor Village on the West Michigan Lakeshore

There are very few places left where you can feel happy, safe, relaxed. Pentwater is that kind of place. This small village creates memories for you and your family that won't soon be forgotten. Walking through downtown, you're struck by the colorful storefronts that beckon you inside to explore their unique items...perfect for your home or that special gift. Pentwater is known for its art galleries and antique shops. You can spend hours looking around at past and present treasures. Discuss the day's news inside one of Pentwater's cozy restaurants, or take an ice cream cone and sit on the soft grass on the Village Green. The cool breezes off Lake Michigan will refresh you, and it's fun to watch the boats come in and out of Pentwater marinas.

Slip onto a side street and admire the charming Victorian homes and cottages of Pentwater. Many take pride in their beautiful gardens, filled with colorful hyacinths, daylillies, roses, and hydrangeas. The tree-lined streets are so typical of bygone days in small town America.

Thursday nights during the summer on the Pentwater Village Green, don't miss the Civic Band Concerts. Local musicians play a variety of great music from 8-9pm, and it's a wonderful family activity. You can even bring your dog!

Two special celebrations offer many family-oriented activities each year, Pentwater Homecoming and Pentwater Oktoberfest.

Nearby is the Charles Mears State Park public beach where you'll enjoy the natural Lake Michigan shoreline of Pentwater.
