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.
The Escanaba Area is a fall getaway above anything else. Travel through the northern hardwoods of Hiawatha National Forest and witness fall's color kaleidoscope. 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. Bag your buck or bird during firearm or bow hunting seasons. But 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 fall, above everything else, relax and refuel in Escanaba.
