In the area...

  • Mackinac Island (approx. 50 miles from the Soo) -  Much of the island has undergone extensive historical preservation and restoration; as a result, the entire island is listed as a National Historic Landmark. It is well known for its numerous cultural events; its wide variety of architectural styles, including the famous Victorian Grand Hotel; its fudge; and its ban on almost all motor vehicles. More than 80 percent of the island is preserved as Mackinac Island State Park.
  • Taquamenon Falls (approx. 70 miles from the Soo) - This beautiful falls in Tahquamenon Falls State Park is hidden in the forest along the Tahquamenon River and is easily accessible for those seeking the quiet and solitude of the Upper Peninsula wilderness.  Tahquamenon Falls State Park encompasses close to 52,000 acres stretching over 13 miles. Centerpiece of the park, and the very reason for its existence, is the Tahquamenon River with its waterfalls.
  • Whitefish Point (approx. 70 miles from the Soo) - Whitefish Point is known as the Graveyard of Ships as more vessels have been lost here than in any other part of the lake. Hundreds of vessels, including the famed Edmund Fitzgerald, lie on the bottom of the bay and the approaches. The lighthouse marks the end of an 80 mile stretch of shoreline known as Lake Superior's Shipwreck Coast. This light has shined onto the big lake unfailingly for almost 150 years except for the night when the Edmund Fitzgerald went down.The lighthouse and museum are open from May 1st until October 31st daily from 10 A.M. to 6 PM, There is an admission fee to enter the Lighthouse or the Shipwreck Museum, but there is no charge for walking on the grounds around the lighthouse, visiting the Gift Shop, and taking a stroll on the beach.
