They say the perfect resting heartbeat is 60 beats per minute – we couldn’t agree more, most of the time.
Discover the Upper Peninsula
Fall is one the most picturesque times in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Year after year, we’ve been voted into the top fall foliage destinations in the country! And it’s no surprise. From mid-September to mid-October, the U.P.’s seven million acres of hardwood and pine forests are drenched in fiery hues of yellow, orange and red mixed with rich green and brown.
The crisp autumn air is calling you to get outside and play here. Explore our historic state parks and national shorelines, meet the species who pass through on their migration patterns, ATV along tree-canopied trails, motorcycle on twisting back roads and spend time paddling on the rivers and lakes that mirror the blazing tree colors and bright blues of the sky. Three Great Lakes, Michigan, Huron and Superior, lure you to their sandy beaches, towering dunes and rocky shoals where you will be spellbound by the pounding surf or glass-like calmness. Along our coasts, you can see 40 lighthouses, giant freighters, awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets. Plan your getaway here. Your only distraction will be the scenery surrounding you.
