UP Weekend Trip Suggestions?

I was thinking of renting a car and driving up to the UP with the wife for our wedding anniversary weekend in August. I for sure want to do the Pictured Rocks cruise... anything else people recommend? Should I stay in Munising or Marquette? Is it worth it to go all the way to the Keewanaw Peninsula?

Thanks in advance!

Go stand in a forest and pee

I’m not kidding. It’s a good time. And only like 3 people live in the UP so nobody will see you

I would definitely recommend Marquette, it's gorgeous old town.

I don't think you can go wrong either way though

Keewanaw is all beautiful. Recommend it as well.

The little beach town of Grand Marais, MI. There is a camp ground on the shores of Lake Superior, we found a VRBO that suited 4 ppl gorgeous sunsets, crystal clear water and near the Sable beach state park, nice hiking trails to the shore with huge sand dunes at the lake.

Also Taqhuanemon falls state park is worth a stop.

Yeah, its a bit out of the way, but Tahquamenon Falls is cool as hell. it's like an orange-tinted mini-niagra that no one has ever heard of.

by water volume, it's the 3rd largest vertical waterfall in the US east of the mississippi (after niagra and cohoes falls in upstate NY).

the river drains a large area of cedar swamps that release tannins into the water that give the falls their trademark orange coloring.
