The Art Coast of Michigan

by | May 19, 2004

One of my favorite things about living in the Midwest (and being a Midwesterner) is the nativist idea I like to harbor about my ability to discern and enjoy true American gems like Saugatuck and Douglas, MI, for instance. One might add Okoboji, Mineral Point, Door County, or the Sandhills to this quick list—all places where the east coast intelligentsia and west coast hipster tribe dare to tread. These communities are that much finer for that fact.
