Three Days in Port Sanilac, Michigan

 

lighthousePort Sanilac is a Michigan gem on the shore of Lake Huron. Steeped in the history of the Great Lakes and the Lumber Era, Port Sanilac is a thriving community today.  In the Sanilac Shores Underwater Preserve there are at least four shipwrecks to be explored. An amateur skin or scuba diver can easily view two of them. Some of the shipwrecks with more obstructions should only be viewed by more experienced divers.

For those that would rather stay dry, the Sanilac Shores area offers other such unique attractions as the Port Sanilac Lighthouse, Sanilac Petroglyphs (early American Indian stone carvings), and museums.  The Holland House offers comfortable lodgings, and a great place to relax and tour the local attractions or enjoy the Classic Boat Show weekend.
