THE BLUE WATER AREA



ST. CLAIR
St. Clair is located nine miles from Interstate 94-approximately 45 minutes from downtown Detroit.  This location is perfect for those who want to get out of the busy city life and visit a smaller community with a slower pace of life and to do so in under an hour! 
The small town charm and slower pace of life coupled with warm fellowship and community pride make St. Clair a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family.  The vitality of the area is reflected in the many cultural and recreational opportunities offered.  St. Clair is unique in its wide variety of cultural community organizations including the St. Clair Art Association, the St. Clair Theatre Guild, the St. Clair Historical Society and Museum, the St. Clair Music Club and many other organizations.  Many events such as the St. Clair Art Fair, the 4th of July Fireworks, the Summer Music series and the APBA Power Boat races and numerous other events enhance the cultural atmosphere.


Floating down the river!


Tug boat on the ice flows.


A long standing tradition during the summer months is floating down the river with friends and family.  An evening walk or morning bicycle ride along the St. Clair River brings both beauty and pleasure.  Beneath a summer sun, the river offers you peace of mind.  Under the winter sun, the river offers you a grand view of ice flows, gleaming with tranquility and the beauty of nature.  And all year you will see the majesty of the Great Lakes and ocean-going freighters delivery prosperity to our state.
St. Clair offers residents and visitors the longest fresh water boardwalk in the world-over 1,000 feet to stroll or bike along the river at the foot of Palmer Park.
The river offers you a variety of water-related activities, from boating and fishing to swimming and water-skiing.  Protected overnight docking with complete facilities is available just a short walk from downtown.
The city is located along the St. Clair River, connecting Lake Huron to the Detroit River.  The city boats the largest non-salt water boardwalk at over 1,500 feet with ample opportunities to watch boaters and freighters along the river.  Careful planning encompasses the past with the establishment of several historic districts and the future with exciting economic development.
