"At the end of the road" Alpena by johnkebab

Alpena Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 29 photos

Situated on the coast of Thunder Bay, the first thing that grabs you about Alpena is that its pretty industrial, but that it also has a rich history as told by its many interesting buildings and the shipwreck museum situated in the town (there are over 100 shipwrecks in the Alpena region alone).

Objectively, as far as towns go, there isn't a huge amount going on there, a lot of people tend to head to Traverse City for nightlife etc, if Traverse City is for singles, then Alpena is for families.

There are various things you can do when you're there - hunting, fishing, sailing, walks in forests, but most of it is outside of Alpena town itself.
