ALPENA, MI – If you have never experienced the sight of sunsets over Thunder Bay, even in the dead of winter, they can be breathtaking. This is why everyone should travel to the northeast side of Michigan to see natures beauty in some of it’s finest.
Visiting the area is very different from living here. Despite its small population, Alpena is by far the largest city in the sparsely populated Northeast Michigan area, serving as its commercial and cultural hub. It is considered to be one of the two anchor cities of Northern Michigan, along with Traverse City. So if you are accustomed to the concrete jungle with tall buildings and heavy traffic, you will find the very opposite of that in Alpena.
