While visiting Saugatuck we came upon Butler Street and decided to park and walk the street. Lots of nice shops and restaurants in the area on both sides of the street.

You cannot go to Saugatuck, Michigan and not take a trip down Butler Street. The shops are ecclectic and it's so fun to find a little something here and there to take home with you. It is also so nice to see the beautiful water all along this coastal lake town. Worth the memories, trust me!

This is a beautifully maintained lakeside small midwest town, and Butler street is a destination in itself. Shops and places to eat all help visitors enjoy a great getaway. We were there in mid October and the tree lined area was gorgeous. All the shops were decorated in fall decor inside and out!

Saugatuck oozes charm. Yes it is jammed with tourists. Yes the traffic is jammed. Yes parking is a challenge. Bug none of that, somehow, matters. Add in some killer cafes and some seriously good shops, and you've got a winner.

Love the boutiques in Saugatuck and Douglas. Merchandise is unique, trendy, and relatively affordable. They were well stocked in July, a bit less in October. Many shops seemed like they were getting ready to close or go to reduced hours for the winter. But still, nice to walk around.

Lots of nice lttle shops and eateries. Very quaint and cozy. Some of the merchandise was a bit pricey but very nice area to stroll and take in the views. Parking can be very difficult on a nice day but once that has been conquered you can walk everywhere you'd like to go.
