The Great Lakes Maritime Center (GLMC) offers a variety of opportunities to learn about the history and current events of the Great Lakes. A variety of video formats, displays, and speaker programs present a wide variety of information. On site you will find the World Headquarters of BoatNerd.com. The most widely used website for Great Lakes maritime information. A live underwater camera feed lets you view activity under the surface of the St. Clair River; and a live display of ship movements can be viewed. The GLMC is located at the junction of the Black River and St. Clair River. Watch the ships gracefully pass by less than a quarter mile away from the sun-soaked deck or warm and dry viewing room.
Cross Country Ski,Ice Skating weather permitting.
Have a fresh cup of coffee or hot chocolate with a fresh-baked donut, cup of soup, or sandwich at the Coffee Harbor Bistro. Or step outside to the Anchor Fries French Fry Truck and have some delicious fries, prepared before your eyes from freshly cut potatoes, or a hand-dipped ice cream cone from the Ice Cream Trailer.
Bring your fishing gear and try your luck in what some consider one of the best fishing spots around (but you didn´t hear it here!). Or maybe get a couple of ice cream cones and take your sweetie for a walk on a cool summer night...
Great Lakes Maritime Center will close at 4:00 pm on Christmas Eve and will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
