Your guide to Lake Huron

All About Lake Huron

Nestled between Michigan’s eastern shores and Ontario, Canada, lies Lake Huron, one of North America’s five Great Lakes. Lake Huron boasts magnificent stretches of pristine coastlines dotted with picturesque lighthouses and charming towns. Enjoy a day under the sun at one of the lake’s many beaches, including Cheboygan State Park, Mackinac Island State Park, or Tawas Point State Park. Take in Lake Huron’s abundant natural landscapes with a scenic bike ride on the paved trail spanning over 10 miles, a hike through the Huron National Forest, or kayaking in the Au Sable River. Make your way to the southern shores of Lake Huron to explore Port Huron and check out the Fort Gratiot Light Station, Michigan’s oldest lighthouse, and browse one or two of the many museums in the area to learn about the area’s rich history.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Lake Huron

Lake Huron is abundant with activities and attractions throughout the year. One of the best times to book Lake Huron vacation rentals is during the end of spring through early fall when most main attractions are open. During the fall months, vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow illuminate Lake Huron and the surrounding towns. Drive down River Road National Scenic Byway where you can catch a glimpse of the brilliant fall colors reflecting off the Au Sable River. Each June, the three-day Arts on the River music and arts festival provides entertainment with art workshops, music performances, and food. There is also Boat the Blue: Antique & Classic Boat Show each September, showcasing more than 60 antique and classic boats in downtown Port Huron.
