Saint Joseph is a bit of a tourist town. We are directly on Lake Michigan, which is a sight to see for all! We have lots of events, through out the entire year. We hold a farmer's market spring to fall, we have festivals, antiques on the bluff, and plenty of places to eat and shop. There are quite a few rental summer homes within walking distance to the water front. Sunsets never dissapoint! We are home to Michigan's great Southwest! We have an art's district as well. Krasl holds an annual weekend art show every summer. Vendors and artists alike are welcome!

I loved the area I grew up in. It was a very safe place. Located right on Lake Michigan there is plenty to do in the summer. There are plenty of outdoor activities to do. However, I wish there was less tourism in the summer which makes going downtown a pain.
This area is full of adventure! From the gorgeous lakes, hiking the dunes, wild life, and water activities, you can't beat the scenery! Hometown wineries and brew pubs add a touch of flare to the small community I live in.
