Wind your way up the route to over 150 historic sites and arts and cultural venues along the Sunrise Coast! Learn about the rich history of the Straits area and historic lighthouses that dot the coast. Visit art museums and local artisan shops to watch them work their trade. Spend a day or two at the Harrisville Craft Show on Labor Day weekend. Visit the opera house in Cheboygan for an acoustically superb performance. Take in a professional show at the Thunder Bay Theater in Alpena after dining in Olde Town. And don't miss the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and their Shipwreck Century exhibit! With art, culture, and history dotting the shoreline, you'll find you might not have time to stop at them all.
