In its review of Michigan beach towns, DailyCandy writes, "Bordered by the Kalamazoo River en route to Lake Michigan, Saugatuck’s beaches rank among the best in the Midwest. Oval Beach — towering sand dunes, serene shoreline — is the perfect place to unpack a picnic." For local accommodations, DailyCandy advises, "Lounge in plush robes after a soak in your claw-foot tub or cozy up with a book on the wraparound veranda at Beechwood Manor Inn & Cottage, a quick walk from the downtown action."
