Check out one of the largest waterfalls East of the Mississippi River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula! At 200 feet wide, this frothy, foaming waterfall is super fun to visit! It's also a very easy hike from the Upper Falls park entrance. Feeling like a bit more of a hike? Park at the Lower Falls and hike up to the Upper Falls!
With campgrounds, a pub/brewery restaurant, facilities, and gift shops, this is an excellent place to spend a weekend. Imagine the Fall colors, too!
This is one of my favorite places in Michigan.

Lake Superior has a lot of scenic views, but some of the best ones require you to get on boats or kayaks. This one matches a lot of those views, but you can do a lot of it from a car! Also, it's FREE!
So check out Presque Isle Park in Marquette, Michigan! There are scenic overlooks, places to swim, ore docks, cliff divers, rocky beaches, and some amazing scenery!
This one is a definite is you're in northern Michigan!

Are you into sports, architecture, or exercise? If you answered yes to any of these, and you're in the Marquette area in Northern Michigan, make sure to check out the Superior Dome!
Just a couple minutes from the downtown area, from Lake Superior, the ore docks, and several nice parks, this is a great stop!
The kids love running back and forth on the artificial turf. It's home to the NMU Wildcats, but it's open to the public during select hours during the year. Just check out their website...
