Natural attractions steal the show on an Upper Peninsula vacation. Michigan's sparsely populated northern region is famous for its extensive shoreline along the Great Lakes and thick swathes of protected forest. Many of the region's waterways feature dramatic cascades, and a history of volcanic activity has created a wealth of interesting rock formations and colorful mineral deposits. Wildlife spotting remains a top reason to take a trip to Upper Peninsula, with deer, bears, wolves, and porcupines all easily seen in the area's pristine wilderness.
