Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay in Michigan

Wonder why we're called the Great Lakes Bay? Our region borders the bay of one of Michigan's five Great Lakes — the one with the longest freshwater coastline!

And since we're nestled in that sweet spot on Michigan's eastern freshwater shoreline where the thumb meets the rest of the hand — along Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay — endless freshwater adventures await.

Whether you're sailing on a tall ship schooner, beaching along almost a mile of natural Saginaw Bay shoreline at Bay City State Park, or setting out on a Saginaw Bay fishing charter — you'll soon see why the Great Lakes Bay is one of the best waterfront vacation spots in Michigan.
