America at its best! Here visitors can turn back the pages of time to enjoy a simpler life where no one hurries and no one hurries you, a place where everyone is special and everyone is welcome. Just recently the National Trust for Historic Preservation selected Saugatuck/Douglas as one of the Dozen Distinctive Destinations in the United States and the writers and editors of Midwest Living Magazine ranked Saugatuck/Douglas fifth among the top 100 vacation destinations in the Midwest. While visiting either downtown area, you can walk - in a safe and friendly environment - to almost everything. In Saugatuck, you can stroll along the boardwalk admiring the boats or explore the dockside shops. Picnic by the gazebo in Wicks Park overlooking the harbor. Ride a Victorian hand-cranked ferry. Rent a canoe, charter a sailboat or tour our waterways onboard an old-fashioned sternwheeler, dinner cruiser or WWII amphibious "duck" vehicle. End your excursion at the corner drug store soda fountain where hand-creamed sodas and malted shakes have been a specialty for 84 years!
