What Bert Has To Say About Bay City Metro Area

Bay City, part of the tri-city area including Saginaw and Midland generally located on the Saginaw Bay, which forms the “thumb” of Michigan’s “hand.” Bay City is a natural Great Lakes port and center for shipping, and has a vast industrial presence including GM, Dow Chemical, Dow Corning, and a number of smaller chemical, forest products and other basic industries, drawn by transportation, timber, and local brine deposits. The landscape nearby and especially toward Saginaw Bay is pretty industrial, but early industrial history and prosperity brought a then-attractive and now historic downtown and waterfront which is well preserved today and sits upstream from the industrial areas.
