Your guide to Upper Peninsula of Michigan


The Upper Peninsula can feel a little like the Wild West of the Midwest: scenic, rugged, remote, a place that takes determination to live in year-round and inspires awe in visitors. The 300-mile-long peninsula, whose triangular shape is framed by Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, and Lake Huron, is one of those regions that rewards long stays and excursions outdoors — both the warm-weather kind (hunting, hiking) and winter sports. From the Porcupine Mountains, near the Wisconsin border, to Sault Ste. Marie just over the water from Canada, the UP promises rocky coastlines, lush waterfalls, and old-growth forests. The 300,000 Yoopers who live here year-round extend a good-natured Midwestern welcome to those traveling through.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Upper Peninsula of Michigan?

Located to the north of Wisconsin, with boundaries defined by two Great Lakes, the Upper Peninsula is no tropical destination. After a glorious, crisp fall, the snow begins falling in October and doesn't stop for six months. Don’t stint on packing winter wear, good boots, and possibly snowshoes in case you have car trouble. Spring rushes through the region in April and May, then yields to a glorious few months from June through August, when the temperatures hang in the 70s Fahrenheit, making it an ideal time to stay in one of the area’s cabin rentals. Bring shorts and swimwear for the daytime, and light long-sleeve shirts and pants for the evening — black flies and mosquitos can be a nuisance.

What are the top things to do in Upper Peninsula of Michigan?

Tahquamenon Falls State Park

This 50,000-acre state park in the east of the UP is densely covered in trees and home to one of the largest waterfalls in the United States, with a spectacular 50-foot drop. A four-mile hike through maples and beeches brings you to a second set of cascades; the park makes off-road track chairs available for wheelchair users to explore both falls.

Sault Ste. Marie

When the Soo Locks connecting Lakes Superior and Huron opened in 1855, wealth and industry came to the Upper Midwest. It’s still hypnotic to watch the massive ships traveling between the Atlantic and Minnesota rise and descend. The town itself is a pleasure to meander around, too, with a lively dining and arts scene.


Marquette, the largest city on the peninsula, combines the charm of a college town with unparalleled access to Lake Superior and the surrounding wildlife. Miles of mountain bike trails wind around the outskirts of the city. The Marquette Maritime Museum and the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse, open during the summer months, display the fascinating history of sea travel on the world’s biggest freshwater lake.
