The Musical Fountain has been around for as long as I can remember. It's a must-see when you come to Grand Haven; perfect for kids! This attraction is outdoors; there is a lot of parking around, however. It's a "get out and walk" attraction but close to parking. There is also bench seating so you can bring your own food... More

This fountain was cool at first, but then very repetitive. It had a neat Star Wars theme when we were there, but there were only a limited number of options with their patterns for the water and light. After five minutes, it became redundant. We enjoyed it at first, but got a little bored after that. It might have been... More

If you're in the Grand Haven area, put this on your list of things to check out. It is pretty cool! They coordinate different songs with the fountains. It is fairly easy to see from anywhere along the boardwalk.

We were traveling through and met friends for the last show of the year. None of us knew what to expect but we had a great time. I'm not sure it is something I'd go to multiple times but it was certainly something different and fun. The kids enjoyed it too. My suggestion is to arrive early to get easy... More

It was Labor Day weekend and it got dark early but the show didn't start till 9:30 and it could have... More
