Tidbits of Interest
Just a short drive from Chicago, Detroit and many cities in the Midwest, the Saugatuck area is one of the oldest resort and tourist communities on the Sunset Coast of Lake Michigan. Located on Lake Michigan and the Kalamazoo River, Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan, are nestled between the steep, rolling dunes that border Lake Michigan on the west and lush orchard country and farmlands to the east. The area has been a popular vacation, resort and cottage destination since the 1880s for Chicago and Midwest residents.
Today, the two communities provide a host of year-round attractions, annual events, great dining and shopping, outdoor fun and cozy, intimate Bed and Breakfast retreats for visitors.
