About Bay County
Bay County, home to more than 100,000 people, is located on the east side of Michigan's lower peninsula where the Saginaw River meets the Saginaw Bay.
With abundant water access, Bay City and the surrounding communities provide an idyllic getaway or place to call home. Marinas up and down the river serve all kinds of pleasure boaters, from sailors seeking the wind to power boaters out for a cruise.
Bay County hosts numerous festivals, concerts, and entertainment opportunities throughout the year, mixing its historic agricultural and lumbering heritage with affordable living, food, culture, outdoor activities and more.
