Family-Friendly Fun In The Art Coast

With so many exhilarating outdoor adventures and fun-filled indoor experiences, we’ve got plenty to keep little ones to older teens busy and active. Explore our waterways together on a boat or kayak. Bike or hike our miles of trails and roam the dunes at sunset. Get lost in a corn maze or take a ride on a horse-drawn sleigh. Climb aboard for a ride on a tall ship or giant paddlewheel boat. Inspire curious minds with a visit to our local museums and art studios. No matter the season, Saugatuck/Douglas has something to delight both young and old. 

Explore Our Unsalted Waves

Cruise our waterways on a donut boat, perfect for large family outings. Voyage in vintage style with a retro runabout from the 50s and 60s. Or charter a sailing or fishing excursion and fully explore the Big Lake. No matter how you take in the water here, you’ll be completely captivated by our unsalted waves.

Tap Into Their Creative Side

Learn to appreciate art in all its forms with a visit to our many galleries or a tour of our public art installations. Or try your own hand at creating something memorable through an immersive class or visit to an art studio. There’s always something inspiring to be found along the Art Coast.
