The Upper Peninsula of Michigan has what you can't find on your cell phone: the experiences of life. From Whitefish Point to Naubinway there are so many things that can capture your attention and imagination. All you have to do is ignore that electronic device you hold in your hands. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point gives you an opportunity to experience history and the raw beauty of Lake Superior. If you want to feel serenity and witness the somber side of Lake Michigan, discover Seul Choix Lighthouse can easily put a spell on you. There are of course the 'Toddities': dinosaurs and bigfoot, artistically decorated moose sculptures and even a zoo, Garlyn Zoo.
Maybe it's more like the upper part of the mitten, but Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the fall can be a very colorful place. On a stretch of highway that leads to Munising the trees have begun to change the color of their leafy coats to signal the approach of winter.
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.
