Tawas is a region of northern Michigan along the shores of Lake Huron and includes Tawas Bay, Tawas Lake, Tawas Point State Park, and the towns of East Tawas and Tawas City. The latter is the Iosco County seat and a historic little village that was once a major part of the lumber era of the late 1800s, and home of the historic Detroit & Mackinac Railroad. East Tawas is the more-well known of the two towns and lies between Tawas City and Harrisville along US Highway 23 near Tawas Lake and Lake Huron. With a charming downtown area, unique shops and restaurants, East Tawas is a large resort area with a public beach, pier and community center. Another two-mile long beach can be found in Tawas State Park, and almost every type of outdoor sport is available in the Tawas area, such as swimming, boating, fishing, canoeing, hiking, biking, golf and camping. It's also popular for winter sports like cross country skiing, sledding and snowmobiling. Other nearby points of interest in the Tawas region are the Tawas Point Lighthouse, Huron National Forest, Tawas Bay Refuge Harbor, the Great Lakes Marine Art Gallery and the Lumberman's Monument.

Tawas Weather & Climate

The Northeastern portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula has a climate that is directly affected by the prevailing westerly winds which are modified according to the temperature and moisture content in the air as they pass over Lake Michigan. During the winter, cloud cover produced by this "lake effect" prevents the loss of heat; therefore the temperatures for this part of Michigan is somewhat warmer than would otherwise occur at this latitude. Likewise, winds moving over the waters of the Lakes in summer keeps it cooler. Average temperatures are generally warmer along the shoreline of Lake Huron for two reasons; the vast inland forests provide insulation during the summer and the Lake serves as a heat source in the winter along the shore. Rain is heaviest in northeastern Michigan during the growing season of April through September. Snowfall has wide variations from winter to winter.
