It’s called the Blue Water Area for a reason. Deep blue water that resembles the ocean’s, this Michigan coast has something for everyone. A little quieter and a little less hip than its west side sister, it’s the gateway to beach days for those of us who live in the Metro Detroit Area.
The Blue Water Are consists of the the communities along the 140 miles on eastern shores of Michigan from Clay/Algonac to Port Austin.
We will start the introduction to the area in Port Huron.
Port Huron has a privileged location on the shores of the junction of the St. Clair River and Lake Huron. With many different parks, museums and beaches, it is without a doubt a destination that the entire family will enjoy.
Under the Blue Water Bridges you’ll find the Thomas Edison Museum and Depot.
The Museum is housed inside the historic Fort Gratiot train depot and is the actual depot that Thomas Edison worked out of as a news reporter between 1859 and 1863.
The exhibits portray Edison’s story of creativity, family support, adversity, perseverance, and ultimate triumph as one of the greatest inventors of our time.
