Beautiful and remote. Lovely drive, probably best in the fall. If you're looking to buy fantastic jams and baked goods, be sure to visit JamPot, run by a local monastery. It is located along the coastal drive.

Born and raised in a neighboring county of the Keweenaw Peninsula I always encourage visitors to head North on US 41 to Copper Harbor and surrounding area to experience the tranquility and beauty of the entire area. They are never disappointed.

If you're a sea kayaker, mountain biker, cross country skier, snowboarder, downhill or tele skier, then the Keweenaw is the place for you. Rumor has it that the Keweenaw is also awesome for snowmobiling and off-roading, too. Unlike other places in lower Michigan and Wisconsin,...More
