Never a dull moment in downtown Marquette. Very progressive authentic old town feel. Nice selection of restaurants and also some unique stores. The lakefront path is beautiful and offers an area for all types of activities. The harbor is a great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Plenty of free parking in the area.

The largest town in Upper Michigan is also one of the most charming towns in the country. Set on magnificent Lake Superior, the red-stone buildings and historic downtown are perfectly maintained. Just like an old-fashioned movie set (think "It's a Wonderful Life") the main street has unique shops that can easily take a day to explore. Where else can you... More

Cute shops and great restaurants. I want to return in the summer. It was even cute in the winter when it all resembled the Artic North.

Lots of wonderful shops and restaurants to check out, what a great place! I would recommend Vierling or Donckers for a meal and then shopping at Getzs and all of the little boutiques!
