Bay County is located 100 miles north of Detroit, at the south end of Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron and is an integral part of the Mid-Michigan area of the lower peninsula of Michigan close to the city, the country, the woods and the lakes. Two hours north are world-class skiing and resort spots while two hours south you can see "The Birdcage" at the Fisher Theater or yell for the Detroit Pistons who inhabit the Palace. An excellent choice either direction.

From raising children to running your business, to retirement, Bay County beckons with a relaxed, water-oriented lifestyle where a little business travelin’ music goes a long, long way.

Let’s move north where the great eastern broadleaf forests of Michigan seem only minutes away, especially when the autumn leaves are dancing with color. Bay County boasts 3,200 acres of natural terrain, including Tobico Marsh refuge on the Great Midwestern Migratory Flyway. Tobico is the largest natural wetlands on the western shore of the Saginaw Bay and annually attracts thousands of visitors to walk the nature trails and visit the Marsh Museum.

Looking for action? Cross-country ski wooded trails, cut your own Christmas tree, canoe, fish, camp, hike, hunt, bird watch, star gaze ... you get the idea. But how about this: cast for walleye or rainbow trout as a great Blue Heron flaps by.
