As one of Michigan's busiest ports, Bay City is visited by hundreds of freighters each year during the shipping season. From perfect viewing spots downtown along the banks of the Saginaw River, visitors are amazed by the sheer size of these oceangoing ships. If watching freighters is a favorite pastime, pack a lunch, pull up a waterfront park bench, and wait for the show to roll in.
