Lake Country

Saint Clair Shores' name is a dead giveaway for one of its most appealing features: Lake Saint Clair. The town of Saint Clair Shores is strung along the edge of the lake lengthwise, so no point in town is that far from the water, and locals and visitors always enjoy easy lake access. Lake Saint Clair itself offers fantastic bass fishing, sunbathing, bird watching, and, of course, boating. The lake itself connects directly to both Lake Erie and Lake Huron, leaving no limit to the amount of the lake you can explore on Lake Saint Clair.

Motor City Music

During the heyday of the Detroit music scene, Saint Clair Shores was revved up and ready to go. Venues like The Crow's Nest East had a steady stream of strong acts running through them, with The Amboy Dukes playing on opening night in 1967. The club went on to host a wide variety of Detroit bands. Another touchstone of Detroit music was Car City Records, where you could find motor city luminaries like J-Dilla thumbing through 45s for years. While Car City Records eventually closed, there are still stores around that carry the torch for both musicians and fans.
