The Clare Main Street Program was a local, grassroots effort to preserve the history of Downtown Clare, while setting the pace for the future of our community. The Main Street program is designed to improve all aspects of the downtown, producing both tangible and intangible benefits. The Clare DDA is continuing these efforts.
The City of Clare is a great place to raise a family. Located in the heart of Michigan's beautiful Lower Peninsula, Clare is just minutes away from wherever you need to be. Home of Nationally-known Jay's Sporting Goods, Senator Debbie Stabenow, many State Champion high school sports teams, and more Irish Spirit than you can shake a stick at, Clare is the place to be!

When you need a break from shopping, stop and enjoy a cup of coffee and lunch or dinner in a relaxed . The music-filled Main Street encourages a light step as you shop. This will be your experience in Clare!
