Unexpected Awesomeness: The Saugatuck Dune Rides

Dune Rides

There are lots of tourist-y activities that I tend to write off.The Saugatuck Dune Rides are one of them. We have a rental cottage here for the summer, and I've driven past the above sign dozens of times. We've never stopped to experience the rides until yesterday. On an unseasonably cold day, we knew we wouldn't be sunbathing on the beach, so we needed SOME sort of activity, and the dune rides fit the bill.

Lo and behold, we had an amazing, amazing time. The thrill of zooming down sandy roads in an ancient dune buggy was so energizing. All of us had giant smiles pinned on our faces. The experience was part roller coaster, part history lesson, part comedy show. Well worth the money. Enjoy the slide show below!
