The Holland and Saugatuck area is located right on Lake Michigan, on Michigan’s West Coast, just over an hours’ drive from the Michigan – Indiana border. We are easily a “one-tank trip” from Chicago, Indianapolis, South Bend and other great mid-western cities!
This is Pure Michigan!
Being so close to the lakeshore has tremendous advantages. Saugatuck features sand dunes for dune rides, Lake Michigan sunset boat cruises, vineyards grown to perfection by the “lake effect”, and the freshest baked pies you can imagine because they are baked right at the orchard!
Two of the best of Michigan’s Beachtowns!
Crane’s Pie Pantry Restaurant and Bakery is open year ‘round, is “only minutes away, but MILES from the ordinary,” and is next door to the “U-Pick fruit orchards.”
Fenn Valley Vineyards produces wines that are the result of the “lake effect that everyone loves,” and offers “tasting tours in the cellar and vineyard wagon tours.”
Nelis’ Dutch Village provides “the complete Dutch experience” and visitors can enjoy a day filled with “family fun in a bit of Old Holland.”
New Holland Brewing offers both a “family-friendly environment in the Restaurant and Pub” and a glimpse into the process with “brewery and distillery tours every weekend.”
Saugatuck Dune Rides is one of a couple locations in Michigan where you can “cruise the slopes and valleys of the incredible dunes,” on “a 35 minute scenic and exciting tour.”
With Star of Saugatuck boat cruises, you can “take one of our many daytime cruises,” or “go for a sunset cruise taking in the beauty of a sunset on Lake Michigan.”
Windmill Island Gardens is home to “De Zwaan, America’s only 248 year-old Dutch working windmill,” and you can “come immerse yourself in the beauty” of their wonderful gardens.
