Hundreds of tranquil waterfalls, deep forests, and gorgeous beaches encompass Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With breathtaking attractions like the Pictured Rocks, Porcupine Mountains, the Big Springs, and Tahquamenon Falls, the area is a dream for anyone who appreciates the outdoors.
Within driving distance from cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, and Milwaukee, the U.P. is a fantastic road trip for anyone cruising from the west of the area. Once you arrive, tour a historic mine and ride a trolley to Michigan’s largest waterfall, all before kayaking through magical sea caves of the Pictured Rocks, the pot of gold at the end of your journey. Although there’s plenty of exciting things to do, these attractions are an absolute must for your U.P. bucket list.
