Understand[edit]

This archipelago was carved by glaciers and now provides sheltered channels and bays within the Straits of Mackinac - a historic harbor area for boaters and explorers. Towering forests with trails and pathways offer unparalleled year-round opportunities for vacations, day-trips, reunions and quiet breaks from city living. The villages of Cedarville and Hessel on the mainland are historic Upper Peninsula port towns with marinas. They have unusual gift and antique shops, galleries, an outfitter and guide service, and places to eat within walking distance from docks. The Les Cheneaux area lies east of the Mackinac Bridge along the northern shore of Lake Huron, and offers a terrific base for your Eastern Upper Peninsula adventure. Sault Ste. Marie, DeTour, Drummond Island, Pickford and St. Ignace are all within an easy driving distance of 40 minutes or less. Tahquamenon Falls, Paradise and Pictured Rocks are within two hours.
