UP - Central Region
See some of nature’s finest masterpieces on display in Michigan’s Central Upper Peninsula.
Whether exploring by kayak in the warmer months, or ice climbing in the winter – Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore stands out as a destination where outdoor opportunities and pristine beauty abound. Yet, the entire Central UP offers untouched wilderness and breathtaking natural phenomena broken only by the welcoming communities along the way.
Recreation opportunities abound in the region, with Marquette serving as an epicenter for all-season biking, hiking, snowmobiling and more and Big and Little Bay de Noc offering an anglers paradise all year. Local craft breweries and unique eats (try a pasty or cudighi) sustain travelers for the adventures along the road in the Central UP.
