Spring has sprung in Macomb County

The first official day of spring is right around the corner. And we're so ready to get out of the office and enjoy all that the season has to offer. If you agree with this sentiment, you're in luck! Because we've put together a quick guide on where to go and what to do in the months ahead. 


  • Macomb County parks and trails - Some of the greatest assets of Macomb County are its world-class recreational opportunities. Macomb is home to 32 miles of coastline along Lake St. Clair, with ample opportunities for swimming, boating, fishing, and many other ways to enjoy the water. The county also features the Clinton River and its tributaries, which host kayaking, canoe liveries, waterfront restaurants and more. And we can’t leave out our parks. Macomb County is home to three state recreational facilities, as well as three Huron-Clinton Metroparks, and over 3,800 acres of municipal parks. Find more via our outdoor activities page.
  • Public art - Macomb County has incredible pieces of public art across its 27 communities. From murals to sculptures and everything in between, you can spend an entire day (or several days!) exploring artwork throughout the county. Luckily, we've made it easy to find. Use our handy public art map and plan your next weekend out and about!
  • Drinking and dining - Explore Macomb's culinary scene by visiting one of its many restaurants, bars and eateries. For those of age, we've got fantastic breweries and wineries. For folks who want to dine on the water, we've got that too. And for those with a sweet tooth, our ice cream shops, stands and parlors should be opening very soon!
  • Golf - Itching to hit the golf course? We've got a variety of options in Macomb County, and they should be opening quite soon! Check out our listing of local courses and start planning your next game.


This is just a taste of what Macomb County has to offer this season. Of course, there's plenty more to do and see. So check out the rest of our website. From events to family friendly fun, we've got you covered.
