Art and culture near Saugatuck vacation home rentals

Although less than 1,000 people call Saugatuck home, the place continues to magnetize visitors from all over the Midwest. The reason?

Or maybe it's the mind-boggling sculpture gardens and the watercolor workshops. Or maybe it’s the shimmering beaches on Lake Michigan and the undulating dune landscapes. Or perhaps it's those luxurious beach houses and timber-clad Saugatuck vacation rentals. Who knows?
