We are located on the Sunrise Side

1 - Copy


Located on the shores of Lake Huron otherwise known as the Sunrise side, Alpena is perfect for the nautical-minded visitor. This town of just over 10,000 has a lighthouse, kayaking, swimming, fishing, sight sighing, snowmobiling, hunting, camping, and beautiful homes and shipwrecks to explore. There are some great historical buildings to see as well.

Alpena was originally part of Anomickee County founded in 1840, which in 1843 was changed to Alpena, a pseudo-Native American word — a neologism coined by Henry Schoolcraft, meaning something like “a good partridge country.”
