Episode: 1103 "DOUBLE THE CITIES DOUBLE THE FUN" Travel Planner
Two little towns so closely connected that you can’t tell where one ends and the other starts. These two villages feature amazing beaches, night life and an incredible state park with hiking trails, bird watching, a historic lighthouse and a lot more. We take time to enjoy the street dancing on Friday night in the beautiful downtown overlooking Lake Huron. Don’t miss our Tawas Tour.
We have collected information and web links related to the area and combined them here with photos we took and video clips from the show in what we hope will be a helpful guide as you plan your trip. Feel free to select only one or two activities per day according to your family’s interests. For assistance or for more information, call the Tawas Bay Tourist & Convention Bureau @ 877-TO-TAWAS Have fun!
