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.
