If you're unsure what the UP is, it is short for Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Downstate aka Lower Peninsula or anything below the Mackinac bridge is what most people know the state for. Those lucky enough to visit the UP realize the beauty and isolation of this area. There are plenty of awesome adventures to be made downstate, but any true Michigander knows the beauty of Michigan is above the bridge.

These are some of the MUST SEE and EXPERIENCE SPOTS! Have you made it too any?
