Munising

Munising ©
Munising is a city on the southern shore of Lake Superior on the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. Discover out-of-the-way places like Palms Book State Park and Au Train Falls. Step out of the city life by going to Chapel Rock and Beach and Tannery Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Indian Lake State Park (in Manistique) and Presque Isle Park (in Marquette). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Spray Falls, step off the mainland to explore Grand Island, take a peaceful walk through Hiawatha National Forest, and explore the striking landscape at Miners Castle Rock.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Munising trip planner.

Traverse City

Cherry Capital of the World

Traverse City might be well known for its huge cherry industry, but its position along Grand Traverse Bay in Lake Michigan endows it with fine scenery and a wealth of outdoor attractions.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bowers Harbor Vineyards and Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails. Take a break from the city and head to Clinch Park and Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf. Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail (in Glen Arbor) and Empire (Dunes Trail & Lake Michigan Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: cast your line with a fishing tour, do a tasting at Peninsula Cellars, sample the fine beverages at Grand Traverse Distillery, and explore the activities along Grand Traverse Bay.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Traverse City road trip tool.
