Aerial View of Saugatuck

Saugatuck is a well-known art colony at the mouth of the Kalamazoo River and along the Lake Michigan shoreline that attracts visitors from Detroit and Chicago, including a sizable gay population. Among its charms are more than 35 bed-and-breakfast inns, a 19th-century downtown area, and nearby state parks with dunes and abundant beaches. Art galleries and chic cafés line the streets of downtown Saugatuck and sunsets along Lake Michigan are pure bliss.
