Hi everyone, I'm a college student planning a 3-day roadtrip across Michigan's upper peninsula in June 2011. I plan to start from Marquette and end at Sault Ste Marie.
I'm using Google Maps to plan my route, but it tends to take me away from driving along the shoreline of Lake Superior.
A few questions I have are:
1) Is it possible to drive through Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore close to the lake? Instead of driving along highway 28/94.
2) Is it worth heading to Grand Marais?
3) Should I drive through Tahquamenon Falls State Park along route 123 and visit the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum? Or should I skip it and drive straight to Sault Ste Marie via Lakeshore Drive along Whitefish Bay? Ideally I would like to do both, but time constraints mean I can only do one or the other.
4) Lastly, any recommendations on things I should do/see along the way? I intend to simply see the sights, and not to hunt/hike/fish.
Thanks very much!
