Discover the Upper Peninsula

Pack your bags and head to Michigan’s premier winter playground where you can lift your spirits in the happiest, most relaxing place on earth — the Upper Peninsula

Winter reigns supreme here. From November to mid-April, snow thickly blankets our three Great Lakes shorelines, towering mountains and whisper-quiet forests. See how historic towns keep their streets plowed and melt the chill away by dishing up steaming comfort foods made from treasured family recipes. Learn why snowmobilers repeatedly boast the U.P.'s 3,000 miles of groomed trails are the best full-throttle rides in America. Or savor the silence cross-country skiing or fat tire biking through tranquil woods. Find powdery thrills at nine Alpine ski and snowboarding resorts. Scale frozen waterfalls. Reel in trophy walleye from ice-covered lakes. Or claim that much-needed me-time, curling up with a good book by a crackling fire. Winter is truly magical.
