Tawas City, Michigan

05 Sep

Travelling has always been for me a constant battle against curiosity and my recent trip to Michigan with my hubby is a proof. Passing by cities and towns with unique names had left me asking the origin of each names and Tawas City was not spared from the hook. Some claim that “Tawas” is derived from the word “Ottawas” asserting that the Ottawa Indians once inhabited the area. However, historical information contends that the name was after the leader of the Saginaw band Chippewas, who were actually the first to camp along Tawas Bay,old Chief O-ta-was.

What I love about Tawas City? It overlooks beautiful Lake Huron on Michigan’s Sunrise Side Coastal Highway Heritage Route!
