Sea Shell City originally opened for business on Old 27 in Gaylord, MI. Since Interstate 75 did not come this far north, It was an excellent location as everyone had to use Old 27 to continue north to Mackinac City, Mackinac Island or to take the ferry across the Straits of Mackinac to get to the Upper Peninsula. When Interstate 75 was completed in 1957, the business decreased severely as there was no need to travel Old 27 to go farther north.
Sea Shell City opened at its present location in May of 1963 located at 7075 Levering Rd, Cheboygan, MI 49721, Exit 326 off Interstate 75. Sea Shell City is open for business from April 1st through the third weekend in October of every year.
