Alpena embodies the haven from the stresses of everyday life: the culturally rich place to relax and a sanctuary to rejuvenate, and inspire the happy, healthy and creative you. A port in the storm. It's what sailors have always searched for when the weather took a turn for the worst. Isn't that what we're all looking for in these days of shouting headlines? Our friendly, historic city may be just what the doctor ordered. We've turned the volume down and slowed the pace a bit so you can relax, rejuvenate and discover your family all over again. So turn your back to the wind and discover a place as close as a few hour's drive, but as far away as you'll ever need to be.
Experience more than a dozen one-of-a-kind attractions that Alpena has to offer. You will discover beautiful, scenic views, and quaint towns rich in history and flavor in Northern Michigan.
Come and see what we do for fun, where something special is always going on. Check out our annual events.
Find adventure on Lake Huron, the Thunder Bay River or on four of Michigan's largest inland lakes with miles of uncrowded beaches to relax and play on.
