Do you love all things nautical like the timeless allure of lighthouses? Are you tired of a frenetic pace and over-crowded beaches? This summer step back in time and relax in one of the beautiful Port Huron inns, and enjoy the Great Lakes region.

Port Huron, Michigan is located near the Canadian Border stretching seven miles along the St. Clair River’s shore at the base of Lake Huron. For boaters and anglers, Port Huron operates Michigan’s largest municipal marina system featuring five different locations for boat mooring. Port Huron locals boast about some of the best fishing on the Great Lakes.

Downtown Port Huron is a mix of residential lofts, distinctive artisan shops, and restaurants for every taste. Visit the Port Huron Museum, home of fabulous artifacts of a by-gone maritime era. Explore the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse. Built in 1814, it is the oldest lighthouse in Michigan. Discover a floating lighthouse, the Huron Lightship used in the days before lighted buoys for areas where it was impractical to build a lighthouse. Stop by the Great Lakes Maritime Center at Vantage Point. Enjoy a wine-tasting at Port Huron’s Vinomondo Winery. Then spend the night in a romantic Port Huron inn overlooking the magnificent Blue Water Bridge across the St. Clair River to Sarnia, Ontario in Canada.

Walk along the sand and explore the port as of one of Port Huron’s most famous citizens, tenacious inventor, Thomas Edison who spent his childhood exploring the nooks and crannies of Port Huron. Throughout his life and career, Edison spoke fondly of the beauty and inspiration of his small-town roots. Port Huron still boasts a small-town appeal that continues to inspire. One of Port Huron’s loveliest inns, named for Thomas Edison, it is an impressive three-story, English Tudor located along the St. Clair River boasting a spectacular view of the Blue Water Bridge. Port Huron is the perfect summer setting to unwind, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of an enchanting, historic port city.
