About an hour north of Detroit in Michigan’s thumb region, Imlay City has a beautiful, historic downtown district with great dining and retail options. The community is connected by a park systems which includes a trailhead for the Polly Ann Trail, newly upgraded Rotary Park and Lamb Steele Park, home of the Summer Concert Series.
