Welcoming Is In Our DNA

Since the early 1950s, Saugatuck/Douglas has embraced LGBTQ visitors with open arms and open hearts. Now, we are home to one of the largest LGBTQ resorts in the country, solidifying our reputation for being the most gay-friendly small town in Michigan. While stunning landscapes and coastlines have always been an obvious initial draw, visitors have returned time and time again because of the inviting and inclusive culture of the area. We fully recognize that the Art Coast of Michigan may not be for just anyone, but we welcome everyone just the same.
