Excerpt from Out & About Travel Guide:
Dubbed the "Cape Cod of the Midwest,"
these diminutive twin towns comprise a gay-friendly haven on the languid
shores of Lake Michigan. With all the quaintness and lack of pretense of
small-town America, these resort towns are surprisingly diverse and
tolerant, with a thriving artistic community and a very visible gay
presence. Because of its relative proximity, the Saugatuck & Douglas
area attracts a strong gay contingent from Chicago to Detroit as well as
visitors from throughout the Midwest. These quaint but bustling towns
are located on the sandy shores of the Kalamazoo River at the mouth of
Lake Michigan. Follow your heart and explore the secrets of the
Midwest's favorite lakeside summer escape.
