Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Manistique is known for several tourism destinations from historical to recreational. If you are visiting Manistique, there’s plenty to do. Here’s our Top 5:
Seul Choix Point Lighthouse (pronounced Sis-shwa) marks a small harbor on Lake Michigan located on the south shore of the Upper Peninsula.
Fayette Historic Park and Harbor features well-preserved buildings from when the town was a once-bustling industrial community that manufactured charcoal pig iron in the late 1800s.
Kitch-iti-kipi & Palms Book State Park is known for the “The Big Spring” in Michigan, which is 40 feet deep and has over 10,000 gallons of clear water gush per minute from the fissures in the underlying limestone.
Hiawatha National Forest is known for dramatic shorelines that nestled up to Lakes Superior, Huron, and Michigan — with lighthouses, islands, beaches, and trails.
The Manistique Boardwalk and River Walk extends nearly 4 miles from the eastern city limits passing under the U.S. 2 bridge into the downtown district, with stopping spots to fish, picnic, and enjoy nature.
