The Best Things to Do in Saugatuck, Michigan
I'm always looking for the next best adventure. I may have lived in Michigan for a majority of my life but there's a lot that I haven't seen.
I recently asked some of my friends where they enjoy vacationing in our great state and one of them mentioned Saugatuck and how great it is.
Did you know that Coastal Living Magazine named Saugatuck one of the “10 All-Star American Beach Towns?" Because I didn't. So, obviously we have to kick off your trip with a list of beaches for you to visit.
- Oval Beach
- Douglas Beach
- Pier Cove Beach
- Laketown Beach
- West Side County Park
Saugatuck Dune Rides
Not only do you need to check out the beaches in Saugatuck, but the dunes are also a great place for adventure. How about a forty minute dune ride?
They're sort of like the safer version of a rollercoaster. Enjoy nature and wildlife while learning about the lost town of Singapore. If you're interested in going, you will have to sign a waiver before hand.
Breweries, Cideries and Distilleries
If you're looking for a week or weekend of bouncing around and trying some of the states best beer, Saugatuck is the place to be. Their beer was one of the reasons a friend told me to visit.
Here's a few places for you to swing by.
- The Barrel Room
- Virtue Cider
- Mitten Brewing Company
- Coppercraft Distillery Tasting Room
- Saugatuck Brewing Company
You don't have to rock, paper, scissor over who's going to be the designated driver if you do the Saugatuck/Douglas Coastal Tour! Most of the tours visit 3-4 wineries/breweries.
If beer and cider aren't really your thing and you're more of a wine-o, how about the ultimate wine tasting weekend?
