Western UP Immersion into Natural Beauty
Traveling throughout Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is an immersion into natural beauty and the history of people determined to build a good life from the untamed land and the Great Lakes that surrounded them. But the Western U.P. has a distinctive brand of grit built from its tree-covered mountains, expansive wilderness and veins of copper and iron.
Central UP Gorgeous Shorelines, Intriguing History
