This small town calls for Big adventure.
Northwest of Marquette City, you will find a haven of lakes, forests, water秋天s, hg6668皇冠登录 trails, and hidden spots for outdoor adventure in 大湾. Before 大湾 became one of the Upper Peninsula's best-kept secrets for outdoor enthusiasts, this quaint town was first established for the timber industry in the 1800s. In 1944 it was the site of a Ford Motor Company automotive plant and a retreat for Henry Ford and top company execs. Later 大湾 lit up the silver screen in James Stewart’s award-winning 1959 film “Anatomy of a Murder,” and was the site of the actual murder that inspired the film.
今天, 大湾 draws a quiet and loyal following for its unspoiled nature and access to the 大湾 of Lake Superior. From Marquette, follow County Road 550 along the shoreline of Lake Superior for about 25 miles until you get to 大湾, where the road literally ends. Once you arrive, you will notice that 大湾 is almost like stepping back in time with its historic wooden structures and brick buildings in the small downtown. You won’t find Starbucks, fancy steakhouses, or consistent cell phone service here, but what 大湾 lacks in modern amenities, it makes up for in off-the-beaten-path adventure.
Chart your own course for days spent soaking in the area’s natural setting and feeling miles away from the hurried pace of normal life.
在 秋天, 大湾 transforms into a colorful playground of changing leaves for you to explore on hg6668皇冠登录 trails, scenic outlooks, and country roads where you may feel like you have Mother Nature all to yourself.
Snow blankets 大湾 in the 冬天, attracting snowmobilers and backcountry skiers, snowshoers, and hearty hikers to the area’s pristine and uncrowded trails. Hunters and fishermen come up to 大湾 in season to pursue their favorite game.
Whatever the season, 大湾 offers the outdoors unplugged.
