Marine City

A popular visitor getaway noted for its unique boutiques, eateries, and award-winning theatre performances. Historically, Marine City was known as a ship building center of the Great Lakes. Because of this, many captains, sailors, and shipbuilders made their homes here and can be seen in the grand architecture.
