Saugatuck has long claimed boasting rights as one of the most stunning destinations in the country and a breathtaking setting for a corporate retreat. Now it’s official. Conde Nast Traveler has named Saugatuck one of “The 26 Most Beautiful Towns in America.”  The ‘tiny hamlet,’ the publication wrote, “is nestled among the sand dunes on the east coast of Lake Michigan, making it a playground for sunbathers, kayakers, and dune buggy-riders. It’s a favorite among Chicagoans for its close proximity—about a two-hour drive—and impressive art scene, not to mention a wealth of wineries and travel-worthy restaurants.” 

“We are so honored to be recognized among this impressive list of beautiful American towns,” says Lisa Mize, executive director of the Saugatuck Douglas Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Saugatuck is very beloved to visitors who come back year after year as well as our residents who call it home. Our miles of gorgeous Lake Michigan shoreline, award-winning beaches, charming downtown main streets, and stunning dune landscapes truly make the Saugatuck Douglas area a must-visit beautiful destination.” saugatuck.com 

It’s hard, if not impossible, to beat the beauty of Michigan when it comes to leaf peeping and other autumn activities.

 

Meeting in an idyllic, natural setting doesn’t mean you have to give up a dynamic urban energy –at least not when you’re gathering in The Woodlands, a charming community located less than 30 miles from Houston and George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The town boasts a full social calendar, as well as all of the conveniences found in a more metropolitan locale. But it is shaded by acres of heritage trees, surrounded by neighborhood parks and centered around the sparkling waters of Lake Woodlands and The Woodlands Waterway. 

 

Science has proven what’s long been suspected: Being near water increases creativity and decreases stress levels. The sound of rocking boats moored at a marina, the sparkle and glimmer as the sun hits the lake, the feel of the water as it tickles the toes: It’s the perfect way to relax, recharge and reconnect. So, what better way to engage with your meeting guests and get the creative juices flowing than at a waterside resort!
