Trip report-Wisconsin and Michigan UP

Jump to last reply

Returned three weeks ago from a wonderful trip, mainly to the Apostle Islands area of Wisconsin and the Keeweenaw peninsula of Michigan.

The little town of Bayfield WI is really wonderful. Great little shops, restaurants and accommodations. Took a boat ride out around the Apostle Islands-lighthouses, birds and scenery were impressive. Loved the tiny village of Cornucopia WI with its onion-domed church and galleries.

Copper Harbor in the UP is a low-key tiny town on the shore of Lake Superior and is one of the places where a passenger ferry is available to Isle Royale National Park. Lodging in mom and pop motels and small cafes are so appropriate to the whole experience. The Harbor Haus restaurant sits right on the lake and offers upscale dining that was delicious and relaxing.

Driving on the coast of the Keeweenaw peninsula offers villages, lighthouses and incredible scenery-reminding me of trips to the ocean, especially Maine and places in Oregon. Lots of freighters to watch on the horizon.

Very few people were out, but I assume that changes a bit when the leaves change. A great trip I would recommend to anyone.
