A Michigan Must: Tahquamenon Falls

Tahquamenon Falls is the perfect representation of the beauty to be found in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. A popular tourist destination for reasons obvious to any visitor. As a staple of Michigan, this waterfall should be on everyone's bucket list.

Visiting Historic Whitefish Point

Known as the Graveyard of Ships, Whitefish Point is home to the Great Lake Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Point Light Station. Visitors can take in views of Lake Superior, search for Agates, and learn about the 240 ships that have been lost to Lake Superior.

A Winter Hike at Meridian Riverfront Park

Meridian Township is home to several parks and recreational spaces. However, none are quite as special as the Meridian Riverfront Park. Consisting of 3 individual parks, this trail system offers diverse wildlife viewing, beautiful scenic spots along the Red Cedar River, and winding trails through young forest.

A Road Side Attraction: Alger Falls

Roadside waterfalls are not very common in Michigan, comparatively speaking. But when there is one, they draw a crowd. Alger Falls near Munising, Michigan is one such popular waterfall. Nestled away on the side of the road, it offers easy viewing access to everyone.

Finding the Cut

Michigan's Upper Peninsula is rich with hidden histories. Concepts and ideas thwarted by the wilderness. Communities fading away, returning to what once existed before them. The Iron Range and Huron Bay Railroad is one such history. Today echos remain of what once almost existed.

Hiking the Little Garlic

Compared to its neighbors, Little Garlic Falls is an unimpressive, small waterfall that, by itself, isn't worth the effort to reach. However, pair it with a hike along sandstone riverbeds and through pine tree forests and it becomes a waterfall worth visiting at least once.
