GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) One of the best times of year to visit the lovely lakeshore city of Grand Haven is during the annual Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival!

Our cameras got to go on board a Coast Guard ship to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the ship works and how the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard do their jobs.

The Coast Guard Festival continues through August 3. Free ship tours are offered from 6 to 8 p.m. on July 29, 30, and 31, as well as Saturday, August 2. There are also tours at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on July 31 and August 1 and 2. Tours are free!
