We Discover Bay City Michigan with your host Kathy Murphy from KJM Productions. Bay City is located near the base of the Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron. As you cross the Saginaw River and come into the downtown it is clean, warm and friendly.  The Downtown Bay City website says, “The Saginaw River travels directly through the center of the Bay City’s Downtown, helping create a beautiful waterside community with riverside parks and walkways. During warmer months you can frequently see large great lake freighters and numerous pleasure boats traveling on the river.”  Not to mention a tall ship or two can be spotted.

There is so much to discover in Bay City.  On the Trip Advisor Site, Retrogasm-Bay City, Michigan writes about The Historical Museum of Bay County, “I have visited the Historical Museum several times. Bay City has a rich history and you will find out everything from the lumber industry to ship building and the golden days of the Wenonah Beach. It’s all here and beautifully displayed.”  Joan B comments about the Schooner Appledore IV BaySail, “Had a great time sailing on the Appledore in Bay City. Great for all ages. There is even a moment when you can help the crew raise the sails. Highly recommend and we would gladly go again!”
