Bay City / Clare / Midland / Saginaw

The Great Lakes Bay region is made up of four communities, nestled in the heart of Michigan. While Midland holds our headquarters, the surrounding communities offer their own story. Each community has its own riverfront and culture, as unique as the individuals who make the communities such a great place to live.
