Saugatuck and Douglas are the embodiment of small town America. These harbor villages turn back the pages of time and enter a simpler life. Throughout its history, artists have been drawn to this area. This heritage continues through strong ties to the Art Institute of Chicago. In summer enjoy the many festivals, art based events and the new Saugatuck Center of the Arts featuring many musicals and plays. Visit in spring for the Waterfront Film Festival, or in the summer for the Chamber Music Festival, professional summer stock theatre, year round jazz concerts or the arts and craft shows. Picnic by the gazebo in Wicks Park overlooking the harbor, or ride a victorian hand-cranked ferry. Rent a canoe, or charter a sailboat. Take a stroll along the boardwalk and explore many galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. If golf is your passion, hit the links at one of several 18-hole championship courses while the kids take lessons at the area's golf school. Don't leave without taking a thrilling dune buggy ride or spending at least one day at beautiful Oval Beach. End your vacation at the corner drug store in downtown Saugatuck where hand-creamed sodas and shakes have been a specialty for 86 years. Or maybe go to Crane's Pie Pantry and pick up a home-made pie or handpick your own fruit and bake it yourself. Fine dining and great shopping are all a walk away.
