Saugatuck named the #1 summer weekend destination in the US

Kayla Deneau, Staff Writer

Have you heard? Readers of USA TODAY and 10Best chose Saugatuck as the number one summer weekend escape!

The coastline and quirky, artistic community offers a nearly endless list of entertaining options right in Allegan County’s backyard.

Spend the day sunning and swimming at Oval Beach before heading to Zing Eat Drink for dinner.

Climb the stairs at Mount Baldy and walk through the dunes leading to Lake Michigan, browse the shelves at Good Goods for arts, jewelry, gifts and more, taste local and international wines at the Petter Wine Gallery or go take in a show or view and exhibit at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts.

Take the Saugatuck Interurban Transit Authority anywhere within Saugatuck and Douglas to responsibly enjoy yourself without the burden of searching for parking at each stop.

Whatever you are seeking this summer, it is sure to be found Saugatuck!
