Head to St. Joseph and find so much to do that you'll wonder how to fit it all in.

When you see the sun sparkling on the waves, smell the aroma of fresh-made sweets wafting down brick-paved streets or hear children squealing in delight on our warm beaches, you'll know you've arrived in St. Joseph (St. Joe to our friends). Take time to visit downtown shops, dine at eclectic eateries, splash in the interactive fountain, explore a museum or attend great events. There's so much else to do, too! Spend the night and let the fun continue.


Escape to an inviting sanctuary that's so close you can reach out and touch it.

Nestled along the picturesque Lake Michigan shore, the City of St. Joseph sits in the middle of the action in Southwest Michigan. Vineyards, orchards, sparkling rivers and inland lakes surround us. We're so close you can almost smell the breeze off the lake, less than a half-day's drive from major metro areas including Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit and Indianapolis.


Plug in and stay up-to-date with a steady stream of the latest ways to have fun.
