Tawas City, a stop on the U.S. 23 Heritage Route, is home to plenty to do. Outdoor recreation opportunities within Iosco County can best be understood in terms of two distinct recreation systems: the Lake Huron shoreline and the inland forest recreation system.

The entire eastern boundary of the county is Lake Huron shoreline, and 60 percent of the county is held in national and state public ownership. Each of these "systems" has a distinct set of features or facilities that attract visitors to the area. The attractions are supported by secondary facilities providing lodging, food, entertainment and supplies, all of which are provided in Tawas City and neighboring East Tawas.
