In Michigan's Upper Peninsula (MIchigan's better half *ahem*) there is an abundance of interesting places. One place in particular is a ghost town that's located near Garden, Michigan called Fayette. A former mining town that was abandoned in the 1890's, Fayette is tucked in between Snail Shell Harbor and Big Bay de Noc.
Michigan's U.P. is truly unique, but what enhances it are things you not only see but are able experience. One of those experiences is The Bates Motel in Gould City. It does offer a themed room complete with all the gory accoutrements. *ahem* as well as a bar and restaurant. If you want another U.P. experience, drive over to Newberry (Which happens to be the Moose capital of Michigan) and check out Oswald's Bear Ranch.
Sometimes when you see the obvious you miss an opportunity to experience something unexpected There are many things to be experienced in Northern Michigan (especially the U.P.) I like to take a left hand turn instead of a right (Me and GPS have periodic battles) because the road is unfamiliar and can lead to a new discovery.
Northern Michigan has a variety of things to see/experience which includes a burial site for 30,000 pizzas.
The things we see (or don't) can be so intriguing.
