Saugatuck A “Best Fall Beach Town” by USA Today

Saugatuck Dunes

Seems like we get so many accolades for things in Grand Rapids and West Michigan.

And here’s another.  USA Today announced “ten iconic U.S. beach towns where you can pedal along quiet boardwalks, kayak among fall colors, and score excellent post-Labor Day deals.”

Among those ten beach towns?  Saugatuck!

From USAToday.com:

Oval Beach and the towering sand dunes in the adjacent Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area become desolate places for autumn walks. Come September, the focus in Saugatuck turns to the arts. More than 100 years ago, The Art Institute of Chicago established a summer-school program here, and many artists have stuck around. … Head to the countryside for a wagon tour at Fenn Valley Vineyards, fresh peach pie at the Crane’s Pie Pantry family farm, or a swig of hard apple cider at Virtue Cider’s orchards.
