3 West Michigan Cities Make TripAdvisor’s ‘Most Romantic Midwest Getaways’
Looking to take a romantic getaway? According to TripAdvisor, we've got some romantic hot spots right here in West Michigan!
Three West Michigan locations made their list of "Romantic Midwest Destinations for Couples".
TripAdvisor says they've selected "top-notch destinations" with plenty of romantic activities that are a "good deal for your dollar".
Saugatuck, South Haven, and Grand Rapids all made the list!
I gotta say, I love TripAdvisor's choices. Nothing beats a South Haven sunset... except maybe a Saugatuck sunset. And there's SO MUCH to do in Grand Rapids.
Here's TripAdvisor's praise for each city:
"Lakeside Saugatuck is another great choice for a romantic getaway in the Midwest. In fact, the Saugatuck/Douglas region has become a preferred destination for the LGBT community, and is considered one of the top gay destinations to travel to this year. Oval Beach is a lovely place to unwind, the dunes of Saugatuck Dunes State Park are begging to be explored, and Lake Michigan provides the perfect backdrop for an afternoon of sailing. The town offers high-quality art galleries and art-related events to attend, and you’ll find plenty of charming stores where you can browse for a one-of-a-kind find."
"This beautiful beach destination rolls at a relaxed pace, leaving you to unwind and truly enjoy each other’s company. You can pick your own fresh fruit from the farms here—look out for the famous blueberries, who get their own National Blueberry Festival each year. You can board historic and replica ships and join sailing excursions from the Michigan Maritime Museum, and don’t miss the 19th-century South Haven lighthouse. You might like to join a beach yoga session to unwind at the end of the day, staying on after class to take in one of those Lake Michigan sunsets."
"A short distance from Saugatuck is Grand Rapids, an excellent romantic Midwest getaway for fans of the outdoors. Try paddle boarding for two on the Grand River or cycling around the Luton Park Trails. You can up the romance with a day uncovering 200 acres of gorgeous grounds at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Grand Rapids has been awarded the Best Beer Scene by USA TODAY readers, so be sure to try some along the Beer City Ale Trail before relaxing back at your comfortable rental. Or if you’re in a party mood and want to meet other visitors to the city, why not sign up for the pub cruiser party bike?"
