Welcome to Douglas, Michigan

“Village Vibe. City Cool.” perfectly describes Douglas. You will find the friendliness and cozy feel of a village, combined with great shopping, award winning art galleries, restaurants and top rated lodging.


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.”  A very warm welcome is extended to everyone on behalf of the City Council and staff of the City of the Village of Douglas.

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 decor and gifts, clothing and accessories, antiques, fine art and handcrafted jewelry. You’re 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.

Summer Socials continue through August 24th!
