Attention Tour Operators!!!!

Northeast Michigan's Newest Summer Fun Tour!

"Lighthouses & Light Hearted Fun Tour"

The most frequent comment we've heard the past four years about our NE Michigan Lighthouse Tours is:

"It's been so fun and so beautiful here

We don't want to leave"

Always striving to give the customers what they want we've created this new Hub & Spoke tour to allow your tour bus travelers three days and two nights of just relaxing and enjoying the scenic beauty and refreshing summer breezes of Tawas Bay on Lake Huron.

The lodging we've selected, Tawas Bay Beach Resort is the only full service Resort on Lake Huron complete with a tiki bar on the beach where one can relax with a refreshing drink and watch sailboats and Yachts coming & going from the East Tawas State Pier located next door.

The State Pier extends a half mile out into the bay, provides dockage for 140 boats and is a favorite destination for tourists, fisherman, and morning walkers.

Downtown shopping is right across the street and is famous for its shaded sidewalks and quaint sidewalk cafés, & boutiques.

The High Points of this Tour (in addition to the Natural Beauty of Tawas Bay) are the Evening Dining Events:

First night: "Charity island Lighthouse Dining Adventure"

Guests walk directly from the hotel out on the Pier to board the 49 passenger Catamaran "Shirley Ann" for the one hour narrated boat ride to Big Charity Island. Upon arrival guests are treated to an exciting island history presentation followed by a Great Lakes Perch or Tenderloin Steak Tips dinner served at the Lighthouse that was built in 1857. After dinner and tours of the Lightkeepers home the trip back to Tawas is timed to catch the sunset while desert and coffee are served on the boat on the way back.

Second Night: "Summer Barbeque on the Beach followed by Comedy & Magic" A Good old Fashion Summer Barbeque on the beach with dining on the deck With chicken and ribs, sweet corn (when in season), Cold slaw etc, followed by a Comedy/Magic Act inside the hotel in the Topsider Bar.

During the day, on their own

Call for details for three and four night packages that can include dinner at the region's premier Dining and Brew Pub establishment that includes sampling the 7 different award winning brews & hand crafted ales made on site.
