Grand Haven was just picked as one of the top summer road trip destinations in the U.S., and now another West Michigan beach town is being honored!
Saugatuck is in the running for "Best Small Town Weekend Escape" in a USA Today and 10Best readers' poll.
USA Today experts have selected 20 of their favorite small town weekend escapes. Towns have to be within 150 miles of major metro areas and with populations less than 25,000.
Of Saugatuck, USA Today and 10Best says,
Weekend trippers to Saugatuck, located on the coast of Lake Michigan 139 miles from Chicago, come for its artistic community, local dining, numerous B&Bs and plentiful outdoor options, including relaxing on the beaches of the lake or conquering the area sand dunes. The downtown streets of Water and Butler are lined with cute shops and galleries, while the stretch of the Blue Star Highway just south of town is famous for its antiquing."
Saugatuck is currently in 1st place!
