           Pinconning cheese was invented in Pinconning Michigan,  still the best place to purchase it. A literal Cheese Highway lies along six miles of M-13 in Bay County just north of the lumber barons’ Historic Bay City and the Bay City Mall area.

 Pinconning, Cheese Capital of Michigan

Another landmark is the Bay City State Recreation Area on Saginaw Bay and M-13 runs parallel to the bay shore north all the way to Standish. The yearly fee for residents to enjoy the Michigan State Rec Areas has been reduced to $10 and is a huge bargain. Along M-13, primitive beach areas also exist that serve well for hiking, birding, and watching the sailing ships on the bay. It’s another world. Out on M-13, you’ll find three fantastic cheese shops with hundreds of cheeses, spreads, meats, snacks, gift shops, and cafes attached. Free samples galore!

Another state park is north of the first shop, beyond a comfortable library featuring a livingroom setting for reading.  Just 20 minutes away, Bay City has a lot of tourist attractions,  shopping, and antique stores, as well as maritime installations and sailing. Go for the cheese and stay the weekend!
