Arts & Culture
History and innovation. Footpaths and racetracks. Star gazing and mural spotting. Small town cozy and big city sparkle. Flint & Genesee is a community of makers and doers. Creativity flows from our communities to the places we shop, eat and visit.
Home to the largest county park system in the state, there are over 11,000 acres of parks and nature areas to explore and 142 miles of river to paddle. History lovers can visit the birthplace of GM, catch a show at a recently renovated historic theater or be transported back in time at Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad. Whether contemplating a master’s painting or exploring the solar system at our national caliber Flint Institute of Arts and Longway Planetarium or lighting up the night with concerts, adrenaline pumping OHL hockey and handcrafted libations, Flint & Genesee is ready for you to explore.
