The Upper Peninsula

Explore The Remarkable

The second you enter the U.P. you will feel different. A sense of awe, peace and exhilarating freedom will wash over you. The deeper you go into this extraordinary land bordered by three Great Lakes and sculpted by ancient mountains, rivers and forests, the more you will yearn to explore its adventure-filled wilderness and soul-stirring history. Do so this spring and summer.

Discover the Upper Peninsula

Taking a road trip through the Upper Peninsula will be a treasured memory with remarkable places to see, things to do and adventures to enjoy with your family, friends or on your own.

As you map your route, cross the magnificent Mackinac Bridge at least once. Take a ferry to Mackinac Island and immerse in centuries of history. Watch giant freighters ease by within inches of you. Stare into the bubbling, ethereal depths of Kitch-iti-kipi. Be enthralled by the stories of iron and copper miners, loggers and sailors. Kayak miles of waterways and hike to astounding overlooks. Hurtle down white-knuckle mountain bike trails. Be spellbound by the sun rising and setting and the Northern Lights dancing into the night. Plan your road trip now.
