Welcome to the City of Harbor Springs, Michigan

Harbor Springs is a charming waterfront community that lies in a sheltered bay on the north shore of Little Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan. M-119 connects with US 31 seven miles east and south at Bay View, and Petoskey, which is 4 miles away on the south side of the harbor. The area offers an abundance of natural beauty, four seasons of outdoor activity and an array of cultural and culinary attractions.
