Readers' 15 Favorite Midwest Getaways
"We went to Saugatuck for the first time last year, looking for a quick and close get away. It is less than four hours from Indianapolis and there are beaches and shopping galore. My teenagers loved it, believe it or not! [There are] lots of funky shops and galleries. We rented kayaks. They have a wonderful hand-cranked chain ferry the kids enjoyed. We took a tour of Saugatuck and Lake Michigan on a paddleboat. Lots to do, if you want, or you can sit on the beach all day. We are planning to go back again this summer before we ship my oldest off to college."
