Downtown Bay City

Welcome to Downtown, soon to become your favorite place to visit, work and live. We offer festivals throughout the year, celebrating annual and special events. We have plenty of sites to see, one-of-a-kind shops and places to eat.

Located on the water you can stroll along the Riverwalk and enjoy the parks or visit one of our art galleries. At night the downtown comes alive with concerts, movies, and other special events.

Feel good Monday morning! A momma duck was pacing back and forth by the drain this morning, when it was realized her 7 ducklings were down below! 911 & animal control were called and within ten minutes the police and Joe Jackson from the City of Bay City were here to help!

Mom & ...all 7 of her ducklings waddled away safely πŸ¦†

Thank you to Joe & public safety, you were heroes this morning!

Good morning from @harlessandhughcoffee! β˜•

Harless + Hugh installed a BEAUTIFUL 16' iron & glass door leading to the back patio. The door opens up the shop into an even more inviting space to have a chat, get some work done or just enjoy some time in Downtown Bay City.
The Airbnb above the coffee shop, @stayharlesshugh, has also finished renovations and it is ready to be enjoyed!

Thank you Lyndsay & the team at Harless for contributing your time & energy into Bay City, we love what you are doing!
