We all know the drill. Load up the car, double check the map, head out on the road and pretty soon it's time to stop and refuel.
Welcome to Delta County-the crossroads of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Travel through the northern hardwoods of Hiawatha National Forest, cast your rod in one of 6,000 acres of inland lakes, home to some of the country's best walleye, bass and salmon fishing. The Escanaba Area isn't all country and no city. Shop along the two mile long historic downtown area--enjoy a tasting at the urban winery, raise a pint at the brewery and sample a Yooper Bar at the Upper Peninsula's largest confectionary. Dine at unique family-owned restaurants serving the best in locally-sourced dishes. So this summer, above everything else, relax and refuel in Escanaba.
The Escanaba Area is where the journey is the destination. From iron smelting to rafting across a freshwater spring to eating cotton candy on the Ferris wheel, the Escanaba Area is a blend of bygone days and modern fun.
Offering more than 200 miles of shoreline and Hiawatha National Forest, the Escanaba Area is the land of woods and water. It's an outdoor enthusiast's paradise of fresh water bays, four season trails and the "Land of the Red Buck."
The Escanaba Area celebrates its heritage with events and festivals that reflect its individual community's spirit.
One of the best kept secrets of the Escanaba Area is its culinary expertise. Nationally accredited chefs prepare locally sourced meals with a strong regional influence.
