Blue Water Summer – Not Cancelled

Port Huron, MI — It’s important to remember that everything passes. Everything has its season. All things come, and all things go. In March of 2020, we never thought we’d see the sun again, but warmer days are ahead listeners.

One of the best things about living in the Blue Water Area is the nonstop gorgeous waterfront that gives our region its name. That waterfront is also home to a string of quaint downtowns from Lexington to Algonac that serve as vacation destinations for people from all over Michigan and beyond. The best part for us natives: we don’t have to travel far to experience a summer full of sandy beaches, quiet evening strolls along a boardwalk, and a plethora of small businesses that provide tasty food, eclectic entertainment, and unique shopping experiences.

As we lament the cancellation of some of our favorite summer festivals and big events, let’s not forget that we can still have a Blue Water Summer. Maybe 2020 is the year that we truly discover the stay-cation. Here’s to a summer filled with learning to kayak the Black River, hiking in county parks, and appreciating our area’s history, beauty, and many fabulous local amenities.
