Bay City Waterfront
Bay City welcomes visitors with many antique and specialty shops and fine restaurants and pubs that thrive in renovated 19th century buildings oozing with ambiance.
The Riverwalk is a scenic path that provides public access to the Saginaw River. The path is paved to encourage use by cyclists and roller-bladers. The pathway travels through Veterans Memorial Park, Kantzler Arboretum, Fitness Park and along the riverfront. A pier with a large gazebo extends into the Saginaw River.

More than a thousand feet of sandy beach and over 2,000 acres of wetland woods, wet meadows, cattail marshlands and oak savannah prairies make it an ideal staging area for migratory birds.
