Between Gladstone and Gwinn, along and around M-35, lies the community of Rock. It’s a geographically large, spread-out place with a population of several hundred to several thousand, depending on how you define it. Although, like much of the Central U.P., it’s heavily forested, Rock does have its fair share of farms and pastures. Arguably […]

The Garden Peninsula’s Best Places for Fall Foliage

Mon, October 6, 2014 2:28PM

It’s that time of year again. The kids are back in school, football is back on TV, and it’s only a matter of time before we break out the winter coats and snowblowers. Before that happens, though, we get to indulge in a classic U.P. tradition that draws visitors to Delta County from all over […]

Welcome to the Escanaba Area!

The Escanaba Area is nestled in the northwoods, along 211 miles of varied shoreline, the most of any county in the continental U.S., with beautiful sand beaches, marshes and wetlands for bird and wildlife viewing and stunning limestone cliffs. We are proud to boast the most coast with our fresh bays, but our inland water is also spectacular featuring sparkling streams and lakes. Trophy sized fish are not the only thing lurking below the water’s surface--over 30 sunken ships have made our clear waters their resting place, just waiting to be explored. Most of our treasures are far from buried, with lush green forests, woodland trails and all kinds of wildlife to enjoy. Perhaps you’ll choose to take in the sights from soaring limestone cliffs, historic lighthouses, a ghost town and so much more. 

The area is comprised of three cities and towns, all situated on the shores of Little Bay de Noc – Escanaba, Gladstone and Rapid River. Little Bay de Noc begins at the northern edge of Green Bay, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We are located in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, considered the crossroads of the U.P. We are 450 miles from Detroit (although we feel like a world away), and we are merely 60 miles from the Wisconsin border—from any direction, we’re a great stop whether you are traveling by car or boat!
