WELLNESS

In the Best of Health

 


 

Every vacation should help you reset and recharge, but if you’re looking for activities that specifically focus on your wellbeing—here are some that take into account mind, body, and spirit.

 

Stay Fit

Annual outdoor challenges such as our Town Crier Races, Mt. Baldhead Challenge, and Harvest Bike Ride will keep your heart pumping.  Stay in shape between events with a day pass to Blue Star Community Gym, which offers classes for everything from yoga to bootcamp.

Get Some Fresh Air

With outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, paddleboarding, and golfing, there are so many ways to stay active and connect with nature here. Explore the trails of Saugatuck Dunes State Park and the Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area.  Bike the Beeline Trail for a 24-mile round-trip loop between Saugatuck and Holland. Didn’t bring your bike? Rent them, along with kayaks and paddleboards, from Big Lake Outfitters. For a different way to explore the water, pedal along the Kalamazoo River on a HydroBike from Saugatuck HydroBikes. Golf enthusiasts will want to hit 18-holes at both The Ravines Golf Club and Clearbrook Golf Club.

 

Be in the Moment

Destress with a massage or facial at Bella Vita Spa + Suites. In addition to massage, Massa Body offers other wellness treatments such as Ionic Footbaths, Infrared Sauna, and a Salt Room experience. For Free Yoga on the Farm every summer Sunday morning, head out to Virtue Cider, where you can practice yoga among the fields, flowers, apple trees, and farm animals. Attend a summer mind/body event at Summerhouse Lavender Farm, which offers Guided Meditation, Qi-gong, Tai Chi, and Satya Yoga instruction and practice in a peaceful setting among their lavender fields. Or simply chill out with a novel on the sands of Oval Beach.

 

Eat Well

With Michigan’s astonishing agricultural diversity, there is an incredible bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables available. For the freshest just-picked produce, be sure to stop by one of our local farm stands, like Lyons Fruit Market in Fennville or Barden’s Farm Market on Blue Star Hwy. Many of our restaurants feature farm-to-table cuisine, bringing diners closer to the source of their food. A few worth mentioning include the Farmhouse Deli & Pantry, Grow Café + Bistro, and Pennyroyal Café & Provisions. For nutrient-dense, fresh, and flavorful smoothies and cold-pressed juices, be sure to stop by Tree of Life Juice.
