Upper Michigan is ranked #6 by the Weather Channel for “The Top 10 Winter Family Getaways”
“If you’re from the Midwest, you know what winter really means. And you can take it. You may even love it. If your brood embraces even the heaviest snows of deepest winter, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is a can’t-miss destination for your family. Yes, only the truly well-shod, hearty and adventurous need apply. But if zero crowds, mile after mile of near-virgin snow and family sound good to you, then look no further. The UP has everything you’re dreaming of.” »Read full story by clicking here.

Munising Michigan ATV / ORV
Combine nature, an ATV and good friends and you have the ingredients of great outdoor fun.
Visiting the Hiawatha National Forest is not just about the slow walks, it can be wrapped up in a riding adventure that includes beauty of the flora and fauna on the ATV. The ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ are just a few of the sounds that surround you as you venture through the trail system on an ATV.
Many of the trails were originally old train paths that were used during the Upper Peninsula’s iron ore and lumbering booms of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The Haywire grade is one of those trails; the tracks have been removed but an onlooker will find old railroad spikes from days gone by. Keep looking and you may find remnants from the old iron smelting which looks like charcoal but are harder and sometimes full of colors. Let the Hiawatha National Forest surround you in an amazing adventure.
Imagine being surrounded by some of the most scenic wonders in America as you take a boating excursion throughout Munising Bay. Embark on a journey throughout the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, the Grand Island National Recreation Area and experience the beauty of Lake Superior. The views are breathtaking and the Munising fishing experience is remarkable. Vistors will find an amazing array of rentals facilities here on the bay. There are many who also enjoy the quieter side of boating, such as kayaking and canoeing.
