Waterfalls in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are Breathtaking
Michigan's Upper Peninsula is nothing short of breathtaking. There are so many beautiful scenic areas in the U.P including Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Hiawatha National Forest, and so much more.
Driving throughout the Upper Peninsula is absolutely wonderful. It's one of those trips you'll want to take with your family and spend at least two weeks exploring and visiting some of the best Michigan Sites around.
According to mlive.com:
"Waterfalls have become our calling card and are a dominant physical feature of the U.P.," he said. "There's no place in the Midwest that rivals what we have, and while many people are familiar with Tahquamenon and Bond falls, they don't realize that there are more than 300 waterfalls here.
From this article courtesy of mlive.com, they share some great ideas on what waterfalls you should explore in the Upper Peninsula. I picked out a few of my favorites.
1. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. I've been here several times because it is a must see in the Upper Peninsula. There are scattered waterfalls throughout the lakeshore park. In fact, you can pick up a map with directions to each and every one of the waterfalls.
2. Tahquamenon Falls. Not Necessarily the most beautiful waterfalls you will ever see, but none the less, they're worth seeing during your vacation trek. I would have to say that the lower falls are more scenic than the upper falls. Lots of trail walking for exercise and very enjoyable.
3. Bond Falls. You will love Bond Falls. Take lots and lots of pictures because these falls are amazing. They actually have a 600 foot boardwalk which takes you to six different viewing areas along the way. If you like walking the trails, you will really like this choice as well.
