Smile, Huron vacation!

A vacation in the Great Lakes ought to be on everyone's bucket list, and trust us, Port Huron is the place to be. A vibrant, lively city, it's got a maritime flavor all of its own, with miles of waterfront, a boardwalk, and beaches, plus a vast marina system. Even if you prefer to keep your feet firmly on terra firma, a Port Huron vacation rental will never leave you short of something to do. It's got a fantastically handsome historic downtown, plus a near endless range of events, festivals and museums.

Port Huron vacation rental ahoy!

Inevitably, given its Great Lakes setting, a Port Huron vacation rental for many people is all about the water activities. Port Huron's got nearly 4 miles of water frontage, including parks and several beaches. It's also got the largest marina system in the state, so there's never been a better time to tip your captain's cap over 1 eye and take to the waves. Port Huron's one of those places with a hectic, year-round program of events and festivals, one of the most famous being the annual Port Huron to Mackinac Boat Race.

Trippin' the lights fantastic

There's more history in Port Huron than you can shake a vintage pocket watch at. Try the floating museum on board the old Huron Lightship, and if that one's dazzled you with its brilliance then you can follow up with the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse. Seeing a theme developing? Why not run with it and visit the world's largest light bulb at the Thomas Edison Depot Museum? The Carnegie Center is the final element in the local museum network (sadly no light bulb connection), then you can finally move on to the theaters, galleries, and Great Lakes Maritime Center.

Port Huron's favorite princess is definitely Snow White

Winter in Port Huron isn't for the faint-hearted, but fortunately this buzzing maritime city isn't the sort of place that attracts faint hearts anyway. Temperatures start to drop below freezing in November, and they don't rise consistently back up again until at least March, with plenty of the white stuff coming down throughout the cold season. Spring is over before you know it, then you're into those long, hot Port Huron summers. Best of all, it never gets too hot, thanks to the lovely cooling effect of Lake Huron itself.

When they say "Great Lakes," they're not kidding

A Port Huron vacation rental puts you smack bang at the edge of Lake Huron - one of the 5 Great Lakes of North America. And the scale of it is enough to make you go googly-eyed. Together, the Great Lakes hold nearly a fifth of the world's surface freshwater. More of an inland sea than a lake, old Huron is the third largest freshwater lake in the whole world, covering more than 23,000 miles. It spans the US-Canadian border, and is home to a staggering range of marine life, despite fears that invasive species have killed off some of its rarer inhabitants.
