EXPLORING THE UPPER PENINSULA

Explore the dense forests of the Upper Peninsula and meet the many natives who live there.
You may spot the elusive whitetail, moose and bear, or a beaver building his house.

Travel down the almost untouched rivers and streams with not a cabin or person in sight. Explore the best fishing holes, test a new lure or work on the fine art of fly fishing.

This is an exciting place for camping, hiking or just driving down one of the many forest roads. 

Enjoy the beautiful waterfalls and the many miles of Michigan and National Forests. 

Or just sit and relax and enjoy the beauty of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Check out our real estate listings for that log cabin or acreage you've always dreamed about.

Visit the land where copper was king - once the home of prehistoric miners. 
See a copper mine in the Keweenaw Peninsula, visit old ruins, walk through a ghost town. 

Take a boat ride to sites of sunken ships or get outfitted and go scuba diving on the shipwrecks. Gather agates from the beaches or have fun at one of the local rock shops. Explore the Lake Superior Lighthouses open for touring. Climb the lighthouse tower or visit the maritime museums within. Visit the Soo Locks, tour an old ore boat converted to a museum or follow the last voyage of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Enjoy all the recreation and historical sites in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Prowl through our antique shops for treasures of a time gone by.

Visit Isle Royale in Lake Superior, the site of prehistoric copper mining, now a National Park. 

Enjoy the bounties of the north - maple syrup, jams, fudge, berries, fish from Lake Superior, and the famous Michigan pasty.

Visit the Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, Lake Superior's graveyard of ships. See and hear Tahquamenon Falls. While there, stay in Paradise, Michigan. You'll see why it has this name.

Visit Michigan's Upper Peninsula once, and you will return.

And beyond them stood the forest,
Stood the groves of singing pine-trees,
Green in Summer, white in Winter,
Ever sighing, ever singing.
Song of Hiawatha, W.W. Longfellow
