The county seat is Allegan.
The name was coined by Henry Rowe Schoolcraft to sound like a Native American word. Allegan County is primarily an agricultural area that is rapidly becoming urbanized as the population centers of Grand Rapids on the northeast and Kalamazoo to the southeast expand into Allegan County. A portion of the city of Holland lies within the northwest portion of the county, as does a larger urbanized area around it. In the southwest corner, a small portion of the city of South Haven extends into Allegan County. The Lake Michigan shoreline has long been a popular place for vacation homes, and that development continues, especially around Saugatuck and Douglas.The county has long been a regional tourist draw, particularly the Tulip Time Festival in Holland and the area along Lake Michigan.
