Water plays a big part in this city in the southwestern corner of Michigan. Benton Harbor boasts a river and a Great Lake. The river offers not only a backdrop for recreational boating and fishing, but also for businesses growing along the waterfront. Jean Klock Park is the perfect spot to sit with a bag lunch and enjoy the view. Tourists come for the water sports and stay to check out the area's fruits and vegetables. Manufacturers like Whirlpool Corp. call it home.
