Discover The Thumb

The Thumb region in Michigan encompasses Sanilac, Tuscola and Huron Counties and is home of the Sanilac Petroglyphs, which are sandstone carvings made by Native Americans. This area features many family-owned-and-operated orchards that have restaurants where you can enjoy a relaxed lunch of locally grown produce, apple pies and bread with preserves. The Thumb also has many German-themed restaurants where you could try a dinner of bratwurst topped with grilled onions and bell peppers served with sauerkraut, potato salad and apfelstrudel. Breakfast is a popular meal in this region of Michigan. One of the local specialties is fried bologna, which is often served as a fried bologna sandwich topped with a fried egg and served on slices of sourdough bread.
