Visitor Information for Douglas, Michigan
Welcome to Douglas
A very warm welcome is extended to everyone on behalf of the City Council and staff of the City of the Village of Douglas. The “Village,” that became a City in 2004, is the home of 1,200 year-round residents who exemplify the motto “The Village of Friendliness since 1870.” Douglas is a vibrant and growing community reflecting a distinctive balance between established neighborhoods, schools, churches, and new and exciting businesses and residential developments. Our downtown is an eclectic, “pedestrian friendly” area where you will find an unparalleled mix of exceptional shopping, coffee, tea and homemade delicacy shops, and nationally award-winning fine dining establishments. Douglas retailers are known for their high end quality home décor and gifts, clothing and accessories, antiques, fine art and handcrafted jewelry. You are invited and encouraged to stroll and explore the unique shops and fine dining establishments, or simply take a relaxing walk along our beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. Whether a summer Thursday evening “social,” early autumn home tour or a storybook snowy street gleaming with festive holiday lights, there is always something to see and do in Douglas. Welcome and enjoy. We look forward to having you back year after year.
With warmest regards,
James Wiley, Mayor
