The Western Upper Peninsula has a rich and fascinating history.  Cultural, scenic and historical sites are scattered throughout the natural geographic features of the landscape.  Individually these sites are exciting and fun to visit.  But together, they become one of the most significant accounts of natural and cultural history in the world.  Consider the North American failed rift that occurred over 1.2 billion years ago creating the complex geological features that started the development of modern and pre-European North American culture.

Beautiful scenery, mineral resources, historical landmarks and the Great Lakes water system make the Western Upper Peninsula a premier vacation destination.  Many of the premier historical and scenic sites of the Western Upper Peninsula have now been linked and interpreted in a comprehensive driving tour so the wonderful story behind the beauty can be enjoyed, appreciated and protected by residents and visitors to the Western Upper Peninsula.  The wondrous stories of battles with the harsh frontier environment and the intriguing stories of the struggles to extract the mineral resources below the surface have withstood nature's ever-persistent etchings on the landscape.  More than ten thousand years have passed since humans first traveled through the Western Upper Peninsula.

Follow along with us as we drive through the Western Upper Peninsula and tell stories of its fascinating heritage.
