Marquette County encompasses one of America’s greatest small cities and a collection of historic towns and villages. Located in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula,here life happens at a different pace. The best nature has to offer is never more than a moment away. Proud waters, rugged landscape and hardwood forests thatstretch as far as the eye can see.

There’s a reason they call it Human Nature. We were meant to be outdoors. We were meant to play under the big blue sky. We were meant to adventure beyond our own backyard; to feel the sun and wind on our faces.

Marquette County is a place where humans and nature go together in every minute, every day and all year, always.

So, ask yourself a question. What’s your human nature? Whatever it is, you’ll find it here in Marquette County.
