Port Huron Michigan is a s**t hole glad we didn't make it it's not that big but a f*****g s**t hole and I live in it but f**k it we ain't on the list

It's an amazing city to live, with close proximity to multiple beaches, great restaurants, and the beautiful Blue Water Bridge. Smaller town appeal, with shops and large stores for all of your needs!

Make sure to check out Freighter's restaurant. With a great view of the bridge and overlooking the water, and amazing food, it's the perfect place to eat!

Port Huron combines the worst of the country with the worst of a small and boring city. It is dirty and has a higher than expected crime and poverty rate. Also, it has the backwoods attitude one would want to avoid in a rural area.

There is nothing to watch out for in Port Huron - there is nothing exciting or fun there.

This city has so much potential but there are many problems as well. Drugs are becoming very prevalent and the presence of violence is getting worse. It is such a shame because it is a beautiful area!

If you love water-this is the place to be! The blue water bridge is beautiful, the boardwalk is amazing as well as the local beach front. Don't forget about the freighter traffic that will leave many is awe! Just watch for jerks in the area!
