The Best Kept Secrets

  • 5

Created by Roadtrippers - July 28th 2016

A cozy college town located along the beautiful shores of Lake Superior, Marquette MI is the ultimate summer destination. It not only offers breathtaking scenery, but a relaxed vibe and a taste of the local hospitality. A little bit of everything, Marquette, MI will become your home away from home!

Looking for a challenging mountain hike? Well, if you’re not sure your hiking skills are up to par, I’d suggest Sugarloaf Mountain. It offers an easy trail and expert trail, along with wooden stairs to help you on your way to the top.

Though, if you’re looking for something a little more wild give Hogback Mountain a try. Make sure to wear comfy shoes, because it’s a bit of a trek but definitely worth the stunning views!

On the drive to Presque Isle make a pit-stop at Picnic Rocks for a picturesque view of the lake or park your car and stay for the sunset. On either side of the rocks, you will be greeted by white sand beaches so take your pick for a nice stroll! If you’re lucky, a ship will come in to fill up at the ore docks, it’s quite a sight. Either way, its great pit stop on your way to Presque Isle or the Island, as us locals call it- maybe the most stunning place around town.

Picnic Rocks

Presque Isle is home to many amazing spots, including Black Rocks. Brave souls can often be seen jumping off the highest peaks but if this isn’t your style there’s also a ton to explore being that it’s surrounded by beaches and forests. And if you continue to the other side of the island, you might catch some adrenaline-junkies surfing on Lake Superior and challenging it’s dangerous currents.

Not to be confused with Presque Isle, Little Presque Isle is just a few miles past Sugarloaf Mountain. It’s the peaceful alternative to it’s big brother- Presque Isle. This is the ideal spot if you want to avoid crowds and just enjoy the beach. It’s a popular place to bring dogs and have secret late night bonfires…but shhh, don’t tell anyone!
