Mackinac County

St. Ignace, located in Mackinac County at the southeastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, offers something for all interests. The natural beauty of the area, the many family attractions, museums, festivals, and events, and exceptional lodging and dining make the city at the north side of the Mackinac Bridge a favorite destination.

For family fun, Mackinac Island is just a scenic and exciting ferry ride from docks located in St. Ignace. Enjoy an evening cruise under the Mackinac Bridge or entertainment along the waterfront throughout the summer. Hiking and biking are popular through the vast National and State forest land, as well as swimming and sunning along miles of public beach. For the adults, gaming is a favorite pastime at the tribal owned Kewadin Shores Casino.

Some of the many area festivals include the world famous Straits Area Antique Auto Show, Antiques on the Bay and On the Waterfront car shows, the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk, Festival of Native American Culture, French Heritage Days, Winter Flurry Festival and Sled Dog Enduro in St. Ignace, the Lilac Festival on Mackinac Island, and the Les Cheneaux Islands Antique Wooden Boat Show in Hessel.

Bordered on two sides by the shorelines of Lake Michigan and Huron, with the Straits of Mackinac connecting the two along the south and nearby inland lakes, this area is a haven for fishermen and recreational boaters. In the fall, the woods come ablaze with autumn colors framed by the deep blues of the shore and skyline.

Winter enthusiasts enjoy hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, ice fishing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing and tubing, and skating on frozen lakes or public rinks.

Gogebic County

This diverse region is home to Gogebic and Ontonagon counties. The region enjoys all four seasons. Summertime and "Superior North Country" comes to life. Winter means lake effect snow, over 300 inches in the last couple of years, that is why they call it "Big Snow Country" home of five of the Midwest's finest ski resorts and hundreds of miles of the most scenic snowmobile trails around. Something for everyone year round.

Spring, the rivers and lakes come alive! Fishing opens, anglers hit one of hundreds of lakes and rivers in search of trout, walleye, bass, and perch. With the spring runoff the waterfalls are at their most thunderous stage. The sound of the water rushing can be heard far off in the distance while the mist rises higher and higher in the air creating its own rainbow. Kayakers will find the rivers raging water a challenge of their skill and courage.

Summer, warm days and cool nights make this the perfect place to escape the heat of the city. Walk the beach, ride the mountain bike trails, swim in a lake or just enjoy the view. Breathtaking vistas throughout the Western UP will give you lasting memories and award winning photos.
