Upper Peninsula Information & Overview


The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is surrounded by the Great Lakes of Michigan except on its south-western border, which is shared by Wisconsin. Lake Superior is to the north, St. Mary's River to the east and Lake Michigan and Lake Huron to the southeast.

The Upper Peninsula is separated from it's counterpart by the Straits of Mackinac, which joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is often termed as "Upper Michigan," the land "Above the Bridge" or "The U.P." Residents frequently identify themselves as "Yoopers" (derived from U.P.-ers) and many consider themselves Yoopers before they consider themselves Michiganders.

Enjoy the deep woods, streams and waterfalls, parks, trails and peaks or rock castles and dunes. Take a hiking trip or go kayaking in the lake. Visit the Children's Museum or the famous Soo Locks. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan has something for everyone of every age to enjoy!
