Nautical Mile – St. Clair Shores

Location: St. Clair Shores, Michigan


St. Clair Shores is a city bordering Lake St. Clair in Macomb County, Michigan. It forms a part of the Metro Detroit area, and is located approximately 13 miles northeast of downtown Detroit. The Nautical Mile is a well-known historic waterfront destination in St. Clair Shores and is populated by several marinas. The area has transitioned from a quasi-public waterfront into a commercialized center for pleasure boaters and other maritime industries over the last hundred years. As the Nautical Mile has aged, the city has explored areas for immediate improvement that would be able to translate into larger developments and changes for the area in the future.
