Charity Island cruise held to help foster tourism ideas
A group of area business people set off from the East Tawas State Dock last Friday for Charity Island. The 17 mile trip, which featured a tour of the historic Charity Island Lighthouse and lunch, wasn't all pleasure though, important tourism networking was taking place.
The excursion was hosted by the Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan State University Extension and was created to explore Lake Huron ecotourism opportunities.
It was part of a continuing effort by area agencies to utilize Tawas Bay, Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron to boost tourism that is environmentally sound for the lake, according to Michigan Sea Grant.
