Michigan’s Central Upper Peninsula recreation destinations are extra special because they include the country’s first national lakeshore. Find all-season, premier biking in the urban city of Marquette. Anglers can wet a line in the Walleye capital of the Upper Peninsula — Escanaba, while kayakers can find paradise paddling along sandstone cliffs in Lake Superior. A journey through a national forest offers much to see, with over 894,000 acres that include six historic lighthouses and four distinctly different Great Lakes Islands.
