Hit the Trails
Go for a hike! The good thing about Saginaw is its many parks. Shiawasee is the biggest of them all. The trail is clean, and it extends for a long time. If you go early in the morning or at dusk, you can see the deer. Its never usually crowded. The trails are scenic and...
Ojibway park is about the only park I've seen in Saginaw. Joggers, families, and couples like to head out there when the weather is nice. Its pretty decent in size, with a pretty view of the river. Down the street from this park is a Japanese Teahouse and Garden. Some...
Drive around in big cars
As Michigan is so big...there really isn't much in the way of public transport (from what I could see anyway)...Still, it was fun (if rather environmentally unfriendly), to drive around in some enormous cars which easily fitted in the whole gang.Pictured here, the enormous...
Hagerty's: FLAWLESS local barbecue!
We've been four times in two weeks! Tuesdays their special is the brisket. You can see the smoke ring in the meat. SO tender. Served on perfect homemade garlic toast with smoky baked beans (with meat). You can tell by the flavor - it's REAL woodsmoke. Adds a dimension, not a...
Olive Garden: Italian
I've always liked Olive Gardens- the one on Bay isn't bad either. The staff are welcoming, and your waiter is usually attentive. If you've been to an Olive Garden before than you know the atmosphere. If not, then its a sit down kind of place, that can maintain a comfortable...
Zorba's: Greek Food Anyone?
Zorba's serves some great Greek Food. I'd never had Greek food before, but I've never been dissapointed here. The ambience is ok, though coming through the entrance you pass a smokey bar, and the outside isn't "wow, cool." Lol. What speaks for Zorba's is its wonderful food...
Beijing BBQ: Chinese for Lunch
Beijing BBQ is a buffet style restaurant. Their lunch special is really cheap- I think it comes to 6.25 after tax. The ambience is nice, better than First Wok. First Walk? Lol. Food is better here too. The employees are all pleasant, and the booths are comfortable. The...
Hunans: Skip this Chinese Place
The food was ok- the ambience wasn't so bad. The room is really decked out. But the help are mostly really rude and inattentive. I have even been threatened by the manager when out with friends, and we left without paying a tip.
Their wonton wasn't bad. Stay away from their...
Panda House: Best Chinese Place in Town
No restaurant I've been to in Saginaw yet really tops the Panda House in ambience. The dining area is very nice, with dim lighting that isn't too dim, along with lots of Chinese arts and crafts. The waiters/waitresses are really nice, including the owners. The food is always...
Hello Sushi: Best Sushi in Michigan
Moderate to High cost, this restaurant always serves execellent food. Although they serve more than sushi, including a wide range of Japanese cousine, they are best known for their raw fish. It is small, with good ambience. You can sit at the sushi counter or at a table of...
Genjis: Good Asian Cousine
Genjis is one of my favorite restaurants. It has a very good atmosphere. You can select private seating or you can choose to pick a table, where the cooks fry up your meal on a table that you all sit around, and performs some little tricks to keep you entertained.As well as...
The Mixx: Clubbin'
If you are looking for dancing there is no beating the Mixx! Its got a reputation as a "gay club", but a lot of straight people go too. Its ten dollars at the door (don't forget your ID)- they have a bar, a decent sized dance floor, usually good music- a stage- and in the...

Saginaw real dangers
Yes, the east side is where the poor people live. And the highest percentage of drug dealers. Stay off streets named after fruit trees (Cherry), numbers (4th), and with "wood" in the name (Robinwood) at most times.Otherwise, you'll be fine. I volunteer in the area and have...
the East Side
The East Side can be a nice place to visit if you go to the right spots. A lot of it is rundown though, and most of the crime in Saginaw occurs on the East Side. So, be smart, lock your stuff up, etc. like you would in any other city.
Saginaw is an ultra-poor city with high unemployment. This may explain the condition the east-side is in. I drove through while heading home on 75 from up north. I got the heck out of there promptly. I never imagined I would be that frightened. I was afraid to even stop at...
