Saugatuck Voted America’s Best Coastal Small Town


Last year, USA Today dubbed the West Michigan town of Saugatuck the “Best Weekend Getaway in the USA.” This year, the lakeside town, known as “The Art Coast of Michigan,” won the publication’s nationwide reader’s choice award for the “The Best Coastal Small Town in America.”

“We are thrilled that Saugatuck has earned this title from USA Today,” says David West, vice president of Travel Michigan. “From the charming downtown to award-winning Oval Beach, there’s so much for visitors to see and do.”

Saugatuck was the only Midwestern destination and the only freshwater coastal community to be nominated for the honor by a panel of professional travel writers selected by USA Today.
