Its magical coastline, strong maritime heritage connection and outdoor recreation opportunities have claimed this Up-North community as the "Sanctuary of the Great Lakes". It has many amenities as larger cities, but packaged in a spectacular backdrop that values the water, the woods, and the clean fresh air that makes Alpena a popular tourist destination in all seasons. Lighthouses, shipwrecks, museums, historic sites, dark-sky parks, nature preserves, inland lakes, sinkholes, the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, and a beautiful downtown allow you to choose your own adventure.
