An island of North Woods activities
Bounded on three sides by Great Lakes, Michigan's Upper Peninsula is a natural for water-related activities. However, forests, cliffs and mountains beckon, too.
Laze away warm summer days on lakes Superior, Huron and Michigan. Along the water you'll find grassy spots, sandy dunes and rocky outcroppings. Inland there are waterfalls and glacial lakes. If you crave more activity, find shipwrecks, explore lighthouses, hit some golf balls. Hikers venture through old-growth forests, over peaks and along rivers tumbling to the Great Lakes.
Winter has its own beauty -- and activities such as snowmobiling, ice fishing and skiing -- with three digits worth of snowfall. Spring is bright with wildflowers. Fall stuns with foliage. No matter when or where you go, striking scenery awaits.
But the UP isn't only about the great outdoors. Marquette and the UP's smaller towns, such as Sault Ste. Marie, Houghton and Hancock, charm with attractions.
