Port Huron was the boyhood home of Thomas Edison. There is a museum dedicated to him which is built in the Edison railroad depot. The museum is located on Thomas Edison Drive, near the Thomas Edison Inn.

Port Huron also sponsors the Port Huron to Macinac Island sailboat race every Summer. It is a big event in Michigan, and competitors from all over the world participate. It is the highlight of the Summer in our community, with "boat night" being the evening before the race, when everyone walks along the Black River and admires the sail boats.
