From Mt. Baldhead - the highest point in the twin villages of Saugatuck/Douglas one can look off for miles on winding rivers, beautiful forests, deep ravines and the blue expanse of Lake Michigan. Lake Kalamazoo, a natural harbor to Lake Michigan is home to a hand-cranked chain ferry. Wineries, art galleries, dune buggy rides, cycling, boating and a sight-seeing 'duck.' A don't miss is the nearby pie pantry. The countryside is known as Southwest Michigan's fruit belt. Vacationers enjoy Band Box's ideal location to something for everyone!
