You couldn't ask for much more on one street in a small resort town! We were here on the first day of the season and all the shops were stocked full, landscaping was fresh and all the shop keeps were happy and optimistic! And bring the pooch. Virtually every shop had a fresh bowl of water out front.

Shops and small galleries. My wife likes the jewelry shops. There are bar & grill spots, and some very good ice cream at the 2 Kilwin's shops and another that serves Sherman's Ice Cream. At the foot of Butler is The Butler restaurant on the water and with an outdoor bar for summer relaxation.

Decided to drop in on a whim. It was quiet and peaceful there, getting ready for the tourist rush. That rush will start soon. You can find all types of stores and spend as much time as you want on the off season. The parking is not a problem, either. Overall, great place.

My cousins and I were looking for a quick getaway to celebrate my cousins birthday and this was the best place we could have possibly chosen. The shops were fantastic and the people were the friendliest I have ever encountered. The Olive Shop was just phenomenal. Just a short drive from Chicago and my favorite quick get away spot. Loved...

I visited Saugatuck in 2013 with " Friends Together" out of Belleville Michigan, we loved it and enjoyed the quaintness of the shops. Shopkeepers were very helpful in showing their products. I even bought a beautiful leather bag that everyone raves over and wants to know where I bought it. I cannot remember the name of the shop but it... More

Just a great day of shopping! Don't miss Saugatuck Drug, especially the soda fountain! Many different interests from fashion, decorative and fashion.

The Butler was very quite in the winter. It's a historic building right on the river at the end of the street. Great views, nice atmosphere. What we wanted on the menu wasn't available due to the kitchen having mechanical problems but we a had a nice a nice steak dinner.

Cute shops, GREAT restaurants (Phils is my all-time favorite!) and a fun, friendly atmosphere. Its a great area to walk around in the summer, and the light decorations in the winter make it a fun place in the snow too. Summer brings quite a number of tourists, so street parking may be difficult to find, but its worth it to... More

Nice shops and great restaurants. Very down to earth and friendly people. Felt very at home and look forward to making Saugatuck a regular part of our travels.
