Besides these industries, Alpena offers the public an abundance of businesses along with a community college and a regional medical center. Throughout the 8.93 square miles that make up the City of Alpena are many inviting residential areas and recreational activities for its more than 10,000 residents and visitors to continuously enjoy.
