In the Middle of It All

Saginaw County is located in the central portion of Michigan’s mitten – a short drive from the Grand Rapids ArtPrize and from a Detroit Lions game. Canada is an hour away and so are pristine natural attractions in Michigan’s “Up North”. Closer to home, Saginaw is the largest watershed in Michigan, making it a place rich with nature. The Saginaw River and eight different rivers intertwine and flow into the Saginaw Bay, which connects to the Great Lakes.  We’re big enough to have it all with a vibrant, big city feel, but small enough to enjoy the simple life.
