Good Morning Douglas and Saugatuck, Michigan. No Sunset again last night, but rain on and off which should make for some beautiful fall colors to come.

Today in West Michigan! Partly sunny, with a high near 60. Northwest wind between 11 and 14 mph.

Here at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast, with the forecast calling for rain for a few days, here's a few indoor suggestions.

Why not hit the Saugatuck Dunes State Park and take a long walk through the woods, it will be just beautiful.

You can hit the Antique Mall and see all you grandparents old stuff, wander over the Lakeview Lanes in Douglas, they have 8 lanes. Tour the keewatin (that old steamship from the 20's.

There's a couple of local museums in the area, the First is the Saugatuck-Douglas Historical Societies Museum, located across form Mount Baldy-this years exhibit is pretty cool-this years exhibit traces 100 years on what it's like to live in a summer beach town. Then you can head to the The Holland Museum it's located at 31 W. 10th Street in downtown Holland, an awesome place to spend a few Hours!
