Alpena’s Bucket List: The New Year’s Resolution Edition

Posted on December 29th, 2020
The new year is coming and 2020 really did a number on us all, so it is time to be excited (or maybe cautiously optimistic) about 2021!

Whether you are a local or a tourist, a bucket list is a great way to explore your own backyard and Michigan treasures. As the official Sanctuary of the Great Lakes, Alpena is particularly full of treasures; you just need to know where to look. So if you are in Alpena all year round, or just for a short time, here is the 2021 bucket list for you:
