Many shops line the street, and my hub and I (60s) were surprised at the quality and how upscale or sun the stores are. It was our first visit to Saugatuck, and we will return when we can spend more time browsing and buying. While not on Butler Street, the nearby retro store Swell Times is a lot of fun.

Interesting area with various "boutique" type shops. Coral Gables is a good place to eat along with Pumpernickel Cafe. We come from the eastern part of the state a couple of times in the early to late summer season. ....

Beautiful picturesque street with interesting little shops and places to eat. Kilwin's is on this street - they have fudge and ice-cream, rather expensive but really good. The Butler Restaurant is also on this street - they have burgers, sandwiches and salads, and a deck with gorgeous views.. Any visit to Saugatuck must include a stroll down this street.

Great street to walk down. There is so much to see. Lots of restaurants, ice cream shops, and nice shopping available. There is a playground/park that the kids loved to play at as well.

Unique shopping with no "chain" restaurants or stores. A great place to shop for original art and great restaurants.

Very touristy, but fun to visit. The prices are high, but they have some fun shops. I prefer strolling along the water as opposed to shopping. There's a nice little park for kids too.

Alot of different neat unique shops. My wife really enjoyed it. Most of the stores are pretty expensive and over priced imo. But then again im a frugal shopper and rarely buy anything for retail. But was still nice to walk around brick and mortar stores. Kind of a lost thing now (i mostly shop online for "stuff")

This great street has so many things for everyone. I come here at least once a year and it always has so many interesting things. This year I found this great shop with the cutest clothes and hats. I bought 3 hats and could have bought many more. There are art studios, food establishments, jewelry, shoes and clothing. Even my... More

typical little tourist shops and nice artistic shops all together. It is hard to find during tourist season so be prepared to drive around.

A fun time browsing stores. Super friendly people. The streets are a little tight but not too bad since everyone is pretty friendly.
