Visit Bay City, Michigan

Cozied near Pure Michigan's eastern shoreline with easy access to the Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron, you'll find this whimsical waterfront city. And, Uptown to Downtown, enjoy every special detail — from some of the best antiquing in Michigan to a collection of well-curated artisan boutiques.

Set sail on the Appledore IV tall ship for an Autumn Color Tour River Cruise, where warm apple cider and donuts served on-board are just the delightful added touch to autumn's showcase of color. Or, set out for a different style of adventure altogether — a pub crawl or city tour on Sunrise Pedal Trolley's 15-person, Dutch-made bike — maybe with a pause to capture the moment under the glow of the 3rd Street Star Bridge!

Shop Michigan's largest antique center along an entire city block, browse the many and varied vendors of Downtown's modern City Market, and don't miss seasonal happenings from fall's Great Lakes Market in Uptown to winter's Sundays in the City — where free horse-drawn carriage rides, festive streetscapes, and storefronts, strolling carolers, and classic holiday film showings make Bay City an even more magical place to be!
