Spring sunset on Lake Michigan

"We must cultivate our garden".    Voltaire


Spring in Saugatuck is a time to linger ...  There’s just about everything you want to do this time of year. From fishing and boating Lake Michigan to swimming, canoeing or cruising on a paddleboat, to galleries, golf and shops filled with local, regional, and international artwork. Festivals of film and music, live theatre, beautiful beaches and dunes.

Come. Stay a while. It’s all here.
