This is a hike in off the beaten path, but the views are worth the effort! Enjoy a little piece of our Keweenaw - fall is particularly beautiful.

A favorite spot for swimming and picnicking. The flat shelf like rocks in the water make swimming enjoyable. Remember that Lake Superior is so refreshing.

If you are a rock picker, this beach is your paradise! The rivers comes lazily into the big lake with rocky beaches miles long. Bring your picnic and coffee and enjoy a sunset on the west side of the peninsula.

The name is deceiving - although it used to be all sandy, the last few years of very high water levels in Lake Superior has pulled all the sand elsewhere. After a walk down 80 steps, you can relax on the rocks and watch the kids swim or practice your skipping skills with the rocks. It is a perfect places to spend a summer afternoon.

One of the most easily accessed views in the Copper Country - you can drive to the top of Brockway Mountain and get out to enjoy the views across the Keweenaw Peninsula. Every time we go up here, I feel blessed to call this home!

Stop in at the mine to visit their well stocked gift shop and to book a tour into the mine. It is worth setting aside a couple hours to experience the life of the miners who settled in this area. Some of the hardships they faced are difficult to imagine in this age of advanced technology.

Take the ride north to Fort Wilkins state park. The buildings in the fort are a walk down memory lane. If you're lucky, you'll pick the weekend the Civil War reenactment comes to town and there are activities all weekend long!

This is another favorite of ours for breakfast (an egg sandwich on a Asiago bagel) or lunch (soup or chicken salad sandwich on a bagel). If you can snag one of their Raspberry turnovers, you will not be disappointed. Maybe we will even run into each other!

Kind of like Chipotle, but WAY better! We love our local restaurant for taking the idea of a specialized menu and making it with fresh ingredients and delicious meats.

This limited seating restaurant requires advanced reservations if you want to be sure to get in. Located directly on the shore of Lake Superior you will be treated to a delightful sunset most days. Our recommendation for food is the brisket or fillet if it is available, but skip the cheesecake - not worth the calories in our opinion.

As long as you're not on a time frame, the Michigan House is a great option for dining in Calumet. The Michigan House burger or club wrap are delicious options; the fries are cut potatoes and to die for.

Slim's Cafe is a logical breakfast stop on your way to Bohemia (or the Keweenaw). It recently changed owners and the new owner is a brother of Adam's best friend. We have been up there several times since they opened and have not been disappointed. The last time we were there the Cini-mini breakfast was on special, and if it is available it will be my go-to meal. An egg and meat choice are the extras to a sliced cinnamon roll French toast. Just delicious! Go in and visit and let Al & Sandra know that Adam & Amy sent you up.

This is a building that is near and dear to my heart. I have several hockey players - one has completed his youth and high school hockey, but the others still call this barn their "HOME" rink. This spring we received such a wonderful gift in winning the Kraft Hockeyville 2019 contest. The Colosseum will be hosting a pre-season game between the Detroit Red Wings and the St. Louis Blues this September. Our little town is buzzing with such positivity about this event coming to town.
