Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is a world of its own. “Unpopulated” is a good description, considering the U.P. accounts for 29 percent of Michigan’s land, while only 3 percent of the state’s residents live there. Saying it is undiscovered would be misguided because the area is a popular travel destination. Scenic attractions such as the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore are part of the U.P.’s appeal, and the Chapel Loop hike is a wonderful snapshot of the region’s beauty.
The towns of Munising and Grand Morais frame the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and are part of the Upper Peninsula’s charm. The Mackinac Bridge connects the U.P. with the rest of the state on I-75 and Munising is 412 miles, about a six-hour drive, from Detroit.
