Are you planning a trip to the Upper Peninsula over the Fourth of July holiday? Wherever you stay between June 24 and July 9, there are celebrations near you from Drummond Island to Bessemer. Wave your USA flags at parades, play games, picnic on the beach at one of our three Great Lakes, listen to live music, then ooh and ahh as dazzling fireworks light up the night sky. Hope you will join us at any of these locations.
