Welcome to Michigan's Upper Peninsula!

Visitors to Michigan's Upper Peninsula find themselves amidst some of the largest freshwater lakes in the world—Lake Superior, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron—which draw a continuous 1,700-mile shoreline around the region. Rife with waterfalls, several state parks, miles of beaches and over 4,000 inland lakes, Michigan's Upper Peninsula plays host to a wealth of outdoor pursuits. Whether hitting the slopes at Gladstone Ski Hill, fishing the great lakes, exploring the Soo Locks or relaxing on the beach at Brimley State Park, this area of Michigan is ripe with adventure. In addition to recreation, a rich heritage characterized by American Indian settlement, a cultural mosaic of immigrants and a history of mining, logging and fishing is waiting to be discovered at the Upper Peninsula's many museums, including the Valley Camp Museum and Tower of History in Sault Ste. Marie, Marquette Maritime Museum in Marquette and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum in Paradise.
