Saugatuck Named one of the 10 All-Star American Beach Towns

For those of us who live, work and play here, whether it’s year-round or for a specific season, we know Saugatuck/Douglas is a fantastic community to live in. We are excited and humbled that others, such as the editors of Coastal Living, agree.

The editors of Coastal Living magazine have named Saugatuck one of the 10 All-Star American Beach Towns in their 20 Best Places to Live on the Coast feature in their Spring 2019 issue of the magazine. The All-Star American Beach Towns section features towns that “get the coastal magic mix just right, whether you’re visiting for a weekend or planning your next great chapter by the shore.”

In the article, Coastal Living says about Saugatuck: “Great Lakes life hums here with harbor-front charms, tawny sands, a deep art scene, and even a hand-cranked Victorian ferry.”

With our two distinct walkable shopping districts, deep artistic roots, endless recreational activities, high-caliber culinary options and our location right on the shore of Lake Michigan, our region is a fantastic vacation spot, 365 days per year, and just as great of an area to live in.
