20 Photos to Inspire You to Visit the Upper Peninsula

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is one of my favorite spots in the United States. However, because of its remoteness, most travelers don’t get here. I’ve only been in the summer months, but that may change as I get more open to the idea of a winter wonderland vacation. There is so much to do in this part of Michigan that after four visits I still haven’t crossed everything off my bucket list.

It’s surrounded by Lake Superior, Lake Huron & Lake Michigan, offering hundreds of miles of coast lines. It’s made famous by Mackinac Island & the Mackinac Bridge (and Mackinac fudge!) but there is so much more to the UP than this one spot.

You can camp in National Forests, kayak along National Lakeshores, hike in State Parks, learn the treacherous tales of shipwrecks in Lake Superior, take a ferry out to Isle Royale State Park (one of the most remote in the entire country!) and even cross the International Bridge into Canada. And this is just scratching the surface.

Hopefully this photos will inspire you to add the UP to your bucket list, or even have you booking excursions immediately!
