Great Lakes Bay Region

4.3
Ample opportunities for sailing may be the biggest tourist bait of Great Lakes Bay Region, but certainly not the only one. The region's major cities, with their welcoming streetscapes, host a number of open-air events from art fairs to craft beer festivals. Bay City is a good jumping-off point for exploring the coastal wetlands and scenic trails at the state park, but also a heaven for shopaholics and antique hunters--the state's biggest antique center occupies an entire city block. Nicknamed "Little Bavaria," Frankenmuth serves as home to a self-proclaimed world's largest Christmas store. If you're a fan of the great outdoors, consider a vacation in Great Lakes Bay Region, filled with freshwater and forest adventures. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Great Lakes Bay Region and add them to your vacation plans using our United States trip planner.
