3-Day Spring Adventure

Day 1

One of the time-honored traditions of a girls’ weekend is toasting to your friendship. Go on a wine-tasting tour and sample wines from Modales, Michigan Wine Co., Fenn Valley Vineyards, and Crane’s Restaurant & Winery. Then venture further and explore more Southwest Michigan wineries along the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail. Travel between locations worry-free with a private charter tour through Coastal Tours, Singapore Shuttles, or Untapped Sights & Tours. End the day with a free outdoor concert at Wicks Park.

Day 3

Start your day with a thrilling off-road Saugatuck Dune Ride that’s part nature tour, part comedy routine, and part history lesson. Afterward, take a cooking class at Lulu Cadieux, where you can learn the art of French cooking with your besties. You’ll want to devote extra time to wander around this recently restored 100-year-old former fruit market filled with a blend 
of modern and vintage items for your home.
