The Upper Peninsula
Walk in a gentle snowfall, admiring the beautiful Upper Peninsula countryside that is covered in a soft white blanket. Listen to the soft crunch of snow underfoot and the light tinkle of snowflakes landing. Or sit inside next to a cozy fireplace, listening to the logs crackle, and sipping a warm drink. Find peace & quiet UP here.
With so much fresh snow, there are also plenty of things to do in the U.P. From traditional activities like downhill skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling, to more adventurous ones like dog sledding and ice climbing, the list goes on. Find your favorite winter sports UP here. Hero Image Courtesy @bully_wagon

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
Some of the Upper Peninsula's best views can be seen from these iconic "painted" rocks. Once Lake Superior freezes, you can even explore the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore from the ice! Photo Courtesy @cmickey67
