Along one cozy, waterfront town nestled on the banks of Lake Huron, you can watch tall ship schooners set sail right from your hotel window, shop the largest antique mart in the state, or even attend a cutting edge film and music festival on historic Hell's Half Mile. That magical, nautical place is Bay City, Michigan.
Take your kids for a 360-degree experience under the stars at Delta College Planetarium, or leave the kids at home and escape for a late-night cruise aboard the Appledore Tall Ship or Bay City Boat Lines. Tour our stately mansions and historic homes, or stroll the scenic waterfront riverwalk. Grab a bite to eat at a local favorite like Old City Hall, or see your sushi hand-rolled before your eyes at Fusion 1 Café.
