Although I am not an avid fishing person, nor do I enjoy it on a regular basis (sorry folks, am NOT touching bait!) I did have a fine time fishing. They have BAIT MACHINES (something that's probably common, but I've never seen them!) and they are so close to Canada! There's even a Duty Free shop and I hear that gambling in Canada is primo!

There are so many choices here in SCS it is hard to choose just one. For a good sandwich though I would have to say The New York Deli is the best!
The atmosphere is very casual, the waitresses are very friendly and very attentive. The pricing is inexpesive. The place is one of those out of the way small restaurants that really suprise you with the quality of the food served.
Favorite Dish: I personally recommend the Hot Pastrami with Cheese on Rye, a full order of onion rings!
Veterians Memorial Park every Wedesday in June, July and August from 7:30 till 9:00 pm
Concerts on the park
Dress Code: Dress is casual
SCS is a nice jump off spot to other places since I-94 and 696 run right through it and are accessible at several points. In fact the junction of I-94 and 696 is at the western boarder of the city.
Your own car would be preferred although there are a couple of rental car companies in the city and the bus line is a good one.
As in any city one must read the street signs. On many streets in SCS are signs that prohibit parking on the street overnight without a specific permit. When fishing one should be aware of current mercury levels in the lakes before consuming fish. Mercury and other hazardous levels in the lake and fish can be attained by contacting the city...more
Here's another weird thing you need to know: If you visit someone in St. Clair Shores and you cannot park your vehicle in the driveway, you have to get some kind of pass from the police department. When we were there, you only had to have out of state tags (such as our lovely South Carolina license tags, now mentioned three times just on this...more
Ok, this was scary but funny. We got lost when we got there because we were given bad directions. We wound up at a liquor store way back in a neighborhood somewhere and went in to ask for directions. The man said 'you ain't from around here are ya?' and of course we said 'no.' He proceeded to explain that asking for directions is not the brightest...more
I will say that one should watch out for prices at some of the marina gas docks and shop around for the cheapest one as they often have price wars. SCS lacks Tourist Traps as it is not really a Tourist city. It is a nice jumping off spot to visit Detroit, Windsor, and many other places in Michigan and Canada.
Luggage and bags: Again, I live in SCS and our clothing varies from shorts and sandals in the summer to Parkas and snow boots in the winter. No special supplies or packing is required as SCS has a population of about 70,000 or so and anything one needs can be found in local stores.
When you visit SCS hopefully you will know someone that has a boat. Ask them to take you out on Lake Saint Clair before Daylight and watch the sun come up. If weather conditions are right and the lake surface is like a sheet of glass it is a spectacular sight. If you proceed out into the lake about a mile around night fall during the summer the...more
My sister's parents-in-law live there, she is the best, her name is Sandy, she has a husband named John and they have a fine dog named Kimmie. I had a blast visiting them and would go back in a minute. Hi Sandy, John & Kimmie!! They have adopted me as their stepchild, so now I have cool parents. How nice of them!! :)more
