Located in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Marquette County is a place that encompasses one of America’s greatest small cities and a collection of historic towns and villages. It is a place where life happens at a different pace. Where the best nature has to offer is never more than a moment away. Where proud waters, rugged landscape and hardwood forests stretch as far as the eye can see.

Visitors are welcomed by the clear water of Lake Superior, where access to the greatest of lakes or smallest of streams is simple by most accounts.  In Marquette County, we listen to Mother Nature when she tells us to go outside and play. After all, there is a reason it is called human nature. We were meant to be outdoors and to play under the big blue sky. Adventure is easy to find in Marquette County, within minutes recreational enthusiasts can be fishing, kayaking, hiking, geocaching or mountain biking on top rated trails.

Adventures of the culinary kind are also easy to find. Dining options include fine dining as well as a variety of ethnic options and locally sourced cuisine, including fresh whitefish. Everything is easily complimented with a craft beer brewed with the purest ingredients from one of the area’s many microbreweries.

Founded and developed because of its rich deposits of iron ore, Marquette County remains rich in history, art and culture as well as a proud university town. Downtown Marquette offers many architectural reminders and influences of the iron range.  Taking time to walk through downtown and browse the locally owned stores and galleries is a favorite pastime for many visitors. Many also enjoy checking out the local Farmer’s Market that runs on Saturdays throughout the summer offering home grown and handmade products for sale.

Diverse lodging accommodations work to exceed expectations, many with views and amenities that add to the memories of a vacation in Marquette County.  Travel to a place where humans and nature go together in every minute, every day and all year, always.
