IT CHANGES YOU." --- Anthony Bourdain


"Journey changes you. It should change you. You take something with you
. . . hopefully you leave something good behind." --- Anthony Bourdain

USA Today names Saugatuck to list of "10 Best Lake Towns In North America".

"If it could only be like this always . . . always summer . . . the fruit always ripe."
                                                                        --- Evelyn Waugh

"Thrillist" adds Saugatuck to "America's 20 Greatest Summertime Lake Towns".

"I walked far down the beach soothed by the rhythm of the waves."
                                                      --- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Lake Michigan is the reason we live here and we don't want you to miss any of its magic. There are countless beaches where you can dip your toes in the water, walk or run for 10 miles, body surf, beach comb, build sand castles, sail surf, fish, meander down the river to the Big Lake in a kayak, Retro, Cycle or Paddle Boat. From dawn to watching shooting stars magic happens at our beaches

Start your day at Breakfast at Wickwood with ripe local strawberries in our Very Berry Bowl, garnishing our Bismarcks with Lemon Cream, drizzled over homemade granola, lusciously hand-dipped in chocolate, or with a bite of Triple Crème Brie on crostini. Grab towels, some beach chairs, a book and head for a full day of play at the beach. Beach comb. Be a kid again. Then, amble back to Wickwood in time for Sips & Small Plates at Six before wandering out our front door. From every direction, you'll hear live music in the air playing from all around town.

"The slow breeze and the warm sun write our memories."
