Marquette County Convention & Visitors Bureau
Marquette County is fast becoming the destination of choice for tourists and visitors desiring to have it all in one spot. Not only do we have every type of recreation available to us year round, (including winter surfing on Lake Superior), but our diverse restaurants located in our historic downtown buildings offer a wide assortment of local fare.
Located in the center of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Marquette was recently named one of Top Ten Destinations in the world to visit, Top Ten Winter Family Getaways, Top Ten Great Places to Retire for Winter Sports Nuts, Top Ten places to Live and Ride, and Top Ten for outdoors men to live. Marquette is home to Northern Michigan University and one of two Olympic Training Centers in the United States.
Fall offers up a fine display of splendor with brilliant color throughout the county. A great way to get in touch with the fall color is by hiking or biking on the many trails throughout the county. If you prefer to drive you can print out your ready-made fall color tour guide from our web site.
Add all of the above to the endless festivals and events that are happening, from The Blues Fest, Seafood Fest, Superior Bike Fest, Noquemanon Ski Race, Ski Jumping and Suicide Bowl, Ore to Shore Bike Race and the UP200 Sled Dog Race, WE HAVE IT ALL!
