Cheboygan is located approximately 16 miles southeast along the coast of Lake Huron from the Mackinac Bridge. Situated at the mouth of the Cheboygan River, it is the gateway to an inland chain of lakes. From there, it is possible to travel by boat over 50 miles to Mullett, Burt and Black Lakes. With the river such a popular place for boaters, Cheboygan has several marinas, a lighthouse, beach and drawbridge. The downtown area also has many shops and restaurants.

The name Cheboygan stands for "Water of the Chippewas." The first settler was Jacob Sammons, a cooper from Mackinaw City who built a log cabin there in 1844 to further his business, and thus founded a town. The area flourished during the lumber days, was incorporated as a village in 1871 and later as a city in 1889. Cheboygan soon became a major port on the Great Lakes, serving industry and becoming a coast guard station. Cheboygan’s growth today includes specialization in paper production and tourism.
