The Top 4 Places in Upper Michigan to Watch a Sunset This Summer
The Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram team wants to know: Where will you be taking your vehicle to watch a sunset this summer? As much as we all love Cheboygan, there are other places we’d suggest for watching the sun go down. As most Michiganders know, the U.P. sits far north and is in the westernmost part of the Eastern Time Zone. Which means that the longest days in the U.S. often happen in the U.P., making it the perfect place to catch a summer sunset. Hop on the highway in your Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, or Jeep and head to one of the Fernelius team’s favorite sunset spots:
- Ontonagon. Located on the south shore of Lake Superior, Ontonagon is home to the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, which boasts 60,000 acres of forest. Here you will also find Lake of the Clouds, which is known as one of the most scenic spots in the state, and Summit Peak, which is one of the highest points in Michigan.
- Marquette. The largest city in the U.P. boasts evergreen hikes and views of the Northern Lights. There are also more than 150 miles of trails perfect for biking, hiking, and running. Plus, 83 miles of accessible shoreline provide the ideal setting for paddling, fishing, and other water activities.
- DeTour Village. Located in Chippewa County and surrounded by water on three sides, DeTour Village is at the most eastern tip of the U.P. It’s home to the 1931 DeTour Reef Light, where guided public tours are available; and northern Lake Huron boasts miles of beaches, boat ramps, and waterfront picnic spots.
- Ironwood. Fifteen miles south of Lake Superior, Ironwood is on the western end of the U.P. Nestled in the Wilds of Michigan; the town features a vibrant downtown scene, plus endless natural beauty in the form of waterfalls, trails, and more.
