Harbor-Springs began over a century ago as a well-known resort community, and today continues to be one of the most beautiful and most visited resort towns in the country. The crystal clear water and lovely harbor in Harbor Springs make it one of the hottest destinations for boaters who like to combine their nautical adventures with fine dining and unique shopping. Harbor Springs has a quaint downtown area with fine boutiques, art galleries and antiques, gift shops and outstanding restaurants. The small town atmosphere is perfect for a relaxing stroll, and for those looking for more adventure, Harbor Springs offers the best in sailing, boating, fishing, golf, tennis and more. The Harbor Springs Loop is one of the most challenging cycling tours in the state, especially in autumn when it displays some of Michigan's most spectacular fall foliage. Wintertime in Harbor Springs is no less beautiful, and the area boasts some of the best ski resorts in the Midwest. Harbor Springs is conveniently located in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula, just minutes from the towns of Petoskey, Charlevoix and the Victorian resort island of Mackinaw Island.

Harbor Springs Weather & Climate

The Great Lakes has a big influence on the weather of northern Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This area enjoys four distinct seasons with mild, comfortable summers and cold, snowy winters. The Lakes modify summer high temperatures, keeping things from becoming too hot and humid, thus making the northern parts of the state an attractive vacation spot. Autumn is generally too cool for swimming, but is a great time for other outdoor attractions, such as golf and boating, and for sightseeing. Fall comes early to northern Michigan and fall foliage color peaks around mid-October. The luminous Northern Lights are a spectacular phenomenon that is usually visible from northern Michigan 30 nights per year, most commonly in March, April, September and October. The region surrounding the town of Charlevoix has an average of 5 days per year above 90 degrees F. and 183 days below 32 degrees F. They also receive an average of 96 inches of snowfall per year.
