Grand-Marais is located in the Upper Peninsula region on state highway M-77, near the shore of Lake Superior. The town's motto is "Nature in Abundance," and Grand Marais also considered the gateway to the "Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore." State land and miles of unspoiled coastline lie to the east of town, offering almost every type of outdoor recreation imaginable. Fishing and hunting are popular in spring, summer and fall, and with an average snowfall of 300" and over 100 miles of groomed trails, the area is unsurpassed for snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing. Good swimming can be found along the bay, and rock hounds also flock to the beaches that are filled with agate, jasper and other precious stones. Natural attractions abound in the Grand Marais area, including the Grand Sables Dunes and Falls, the White Birch Forest and Log Slide. Woodland Park, which is located in the center of the village, provides 125 campsites. The Maritime Museum in Grand Marais is a must see, and the town also offers many arts and crafts shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Another important attraction Grand Marais is the Commercial Fishermen's Memorial, which features a beautiful bronze mural showing ten different scenes from the life of commercial fishermen.

Grand Marais Weather & Climate

Michigan's Upper Peninsula enjoys moderate summers and cold winters. For decades, visitors have been coming to this area to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cooling effect of the lake breezes. The Lakes affect all areas of the weather, and summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the Lakes chill the air near the earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. In winter, the area becomes a wonderland of ice and snow, with an average of between 40-70 inches of snow, depending on location. Rainfall in upper Michigan is generally around 30 inches per year, with occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. Autumn is sunny with mild days and cool nights - too cold for swimming, but just right for other activities such as fall color tours, antiquing and golf.
