Alpena Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB)
As the Sanctuary of the Great Lakes, Alpena truly embodies a haven from the stresses of everyday life. It is a culturally rich place to relax, rejuvenate, and inspire the happy, healthy, and creative you. In Alpena you're never to far from a WiFi connection - or a woodland trail. We are that place where history and heritage collide with relaxed outdoor adventure.
Taste and enjoy locally-made wine with friends at a country winery or visit a local brewing company, where beer and soda are on tap for the tasting. Enjoy hot coffee and conversation at a downtown café or dinner at a historic saloon that once catered to rough and ready lumberjacks. An attractive downtown area, an enclosed shopping mall, antiques mall and a variety of major chains offer the visitor tempting options for both shopping and dining. Motels, bed and breakfasts, resorts, cabins and campgrounds offer a wide range of accommodations, amenities and inviting extras.
Miles upon miles of city and country trails, acres of fresh clean lakes and rivers, and hundreds of warm friendly smiles await you in this community that has all the conveniences and technology of a major-metropolitan area, without the congestion and stress.
