Saugatuck is a small artsy town along the southwestern shores of Michigan, often referred to as "the art coast of Michigan." With a population slightly over 1,000 people, this tiny region offers old fashioned streets lined with quaint gift shops and has several one of a kind inns, rather than chain motels.
Considered one of Michigan's best resort towns, Saugatuck has a number of art galleries and shopping options as well as a state park with fourteen miles of trails and a stretch of undeveloped beach.
Nearby Holland is comprised primarily of Dutch residents, though a growing Hispanic community also calls this Dutch region home. Complete with an annual Tulip Time Festival, Holland has tulip gardens, a windmill park and the Holland Museum, showcasing hundreds of years of Dutch American history.
Saugatuck and Holland are located in Michigan's southwestern shore region, south of Muskegon and north of South Haven.
