The Station in South Haven

The station in South Haven is a great Mexican restaurant and has a very extensive beer/ drink list.  We stopped in on a weekday night for dinner on our way through town in August.  There was ample outdoor seating with large umbrellas to provide shade.  The cool nearby lake breeze helped keep us very comfortable.

Seadog Lake Michigan Boat Cruise in Chicago


We purchased a groupon for the Seadog boat cruise in Chicago. The boat leaves from Navy Pier and offers a lakefront speed boat ride or an extreme thrill ride.  We did the lakefront speedboat ride.


The speedboat ride was plenty fast and fun for us. You ride up and down the Chicago coastline, stopping at points for photos and more information on the city.

We rode on Father’s day weekend, so the lake was still pretty cold.  I would suggest taking a sweatshirt or sweater if you ride in the early summer.


We enjoyed the ride and would do it again if we had the time.

Normal cost is for an adult is $27.95 and children 3-12 are $18.95.  More information can be found here:
