Fall in Love with Saugatuck, Michigan

Experience the magic of a Michigan fall when the scenic landscape of Saugatuck/Douglas becomes ablaze with color. It’s the perfect time for a hike along the sandy beaches and trails of the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Or give yourself a real challenge by heading up 302 steps to the top of Mount Baldhead to get a bird's eye view of the Kalamazoo River, downtown area, and Lake Michigan in all its autumn splendor.

For an unforgettable way to experience a fall color tour, take a ride on The Star of Saugatuck. This 51-ton paddlewheel boat offers cruises down the Kalamazoo River on weekends through October, where stunning views of the beautiful fall landscape can be enjoyed on the open upper deck or in the enclosed lower deck. And no visit to the area during autumn would be complete without a stop at Crane’s Orchards, where you can go apple picking or select your own pumpkins from the patch. And while you’re there, take the time to explore (and get lost) in their intricate 20-acre corn maze.

Plan your stay and discover why fall is an exceptional time to visit The Art Coast of Michigan.
