Very enjoyable farmers market and an informative and pleasant Maritime Center. The maritime center has many handy exhibits and screens and announcements describing all the passing lake boats. There is a little sandwich shop in the corner and the farmers Market and a few art...More

This was a nice stop in Port Huron. Nice view of the river and you can see Canada across. Learned a little bit. But the building is small and doesn't have too much inside. Definitely a quick stop along the river walk.

At first glance you might be tempted to skip this place. The museum is about a 15 minute visit. The attraction here is the river which is stones throw away from the building. Bring a lawn chair and camp out under the awning and watch...More

Yup. Dogs allowed. We've taken ours a few times. They love it! You can let them swim too at the small beaches along the path.
