When in the U.P....
Just as Rome is Rome,
and New York City is New York City,
the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
has it's own experience to offer.
Folks don't come here for the nightlife,
although there are several
casinos in the U.P.
Folks don't come here for the shopping,
although there are shopping centers in
some of the larger cities.
Folks don't come here to experience
the "big city life".
Basically, those things are not
who we are
in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Most of the area has been preserved
the way God intended it to be...
thus the term “God's Country”.
We are surrounded by some of the most
beautiful lake shore you will find.
You can drive for miles and see only trees
and wildlife with a few houses along the way.
The East side is known for Mackinac Island,
the Lighthouses, and Tahquamenon Falls.
The West side is known for The Porkies Mountain and its many sites of beauty.
The North is known for Pictured Rocks,
the spectacular Lake Superior Cliffs,
and The Keweenaw Peninsula.
The South is known for the beautiful drive
along US-2 with its many views of Lake Michigan, its Lighthouses, and historic sites
such as Fayette State Park and Kitch-iti-Kipi.
In the midst of all that, are miles of wilderness,
with wildlife to discover, waterfalls to hike to,
inland lakes to fish on, and hiking trails
to enjoy the quiet of nature
and breathe the fresh air.
In the summer, you will encounter bugs...
don't forget the Off!
In the winter, you will encounter snow...
But, anytime of year, you will be reminded
of the beauty of God's Creation!
