Hiawatha National Forest is a national forest occupying an area of 894,836 acres (362,127 hectares). Lying in the Upper Peninsula of the state of Michigan, visitors can lounge by the 100 miles (160 kilometers) shoreline and enjoy activities like hiking and swimming. Visitors can stay overnight at specific camping areas or book cabins. The forest region is also bequeathed with as many as six officially designated wilderness areas.
Considered as a complete park, the White Cedar Nature Center in Peninsula State Park offers several programs for visitors of all ages. The program consists of various plant and wildlife awareness, talks and seminars on nature, hikes, evening campfires and nature crafts. Enjoy watching fishes and bird diorama as well as the historic pictures, that make it a great place for children.
Outdoor adventures abound here at Valley Spur Ski Trails located in the Munising area of Michigan. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing enthusiasts will love the 27 miles (45 kilometers) of trails, while biking and hiking lovers can take advantage of the very same trails in the summer months.
This tour company uses glass bottom boats to allow visitors to gape at the watery remains of sunken ships from past eras. The two-hour narrated tour splashes across Lake Superior's Alger Water Preserve and pauses over three different shipwrecks. The Bermuda, a wooden schooner from the 1880s, is completely intact and postures just 12 feet below the lake's surface. There is also The Michael Groh, a steam barge that lost its buoyancy in 1867. This tour, which is both fascinating and creepy in a weird way, also passes the East Channel Lighthouse, which is odd because it is one of the few existing lighthouses constructed of wood. Admission: USD22 adults; USD9 children; under five years old free.
