About Cass City

Cass City is located in the center of Michigan's Thumb—a peninsula dotted with interesting towns, villages, and rich farmlands. Throughout the area, there's fishing, camping, golf, kayaking, and other outdoor activities to enjoy, along with rainy-day pursuits like visiting specialty shops, local diners, and restaurants. If you love beaches and swimming, it's an easy half-hour drive to Lake Huron. If the rural life becomes a little too quiet, you're just two hours away from Lansing or Detroit, where you can take advantage of all of the events and entertainment that a city can offer.
