You can't beat it! When I win the lottery I'm getting a place up here! Friendly locals, decent food and plenty of snow

This was a fantastic Vacation!! The scenery was superb and the snowmobile trails we're in excellent shape. Eating at the Bear Belly Bar is an absolute must!!! Location is amazing and the food is out of sight!!! I had the best white bean soup I've ever had and the appetizers are terrific..... The pot roast Philly was out of sight!!... As far as the best scenery, the Brockway Mountain Drive and the overlook at Copper Harbor is spectacular!!... Also visited the Porkies and the Lake of the Clouds are a must!!!

I love snow, don't get enough of it anymore, so was very pleased to spend a week with family near Houghton on the Keweenaw Peninsula with Lake Superior all around. Special microclimate with lots of snow. We could even snowshoe and ski outside our rural AirBNB. We used the trails near the College in Houghton, ate in local restaurants, sauna-ed with the snow outside.
Off the beaten trail, takes awhile to get there, but if you want to be almost sure to be in a snowy wonderland, go to the Keweenaw Peninsula.

I have lived in the Chicago area area for a long time and visited the UP a number of times. The Keweenaw always looked too far out of the way. WRONG. As a professional photographer, I brought back more keepers than I would ever expect. The cooper mining area and the old mines were a big surprise.

This is where you take a break from the rest of the US - relax, slow down and forget about the stress of your job or the urban area you live in. But most importantly enjoy where you are, the people who live there and experience the Peninsula. This is more than a tourist attraction - it's a state of mind.
