A day in charming East Tawas / Tawas Bay, Mich. (H-63) is the epitome of a perfect summer day. This compact little town has everything you would want for the weekend within a two block walk. Remember, you’ll be on the sunrise side of Michigan, and watching the sun rise here is a delight. Treat yourself and your family to a genuine laid back summer weekend in a small town full of quaint gift stores, relaxing restaurants, old fashioned candy stores and ice cream parlors. Marion’s Ice Cream Parlor has been a staple of this summer vacation destination since 1945! The Ben Franklin is another staple to this town and worth the visit. East Tawas even has a small movie theater within walking distance from your boat. Please click here for more information, registration and agenda.
