I am planning a 8 day road trip through the upper peninsula. Day one: St Ignace and Mackinac Island for most of the day. Leave for Manistique and stay overnight there. Day two: Kitchitikipi, site seeing then off to Escanaba. Take a break and look around. Off to Iron Mountain. Stay overnight. Day three: Look around and visit a museum. Drive to Lake of the Clouds. Look and gawk. Camp overnight or drive to a nearby city. Day four: Drive up to copper harbor. Admire. Drive to Canyon Falls Park. Admire and rest. Drive to Ishpeming and stay overnight. Day five: Yooper Tourist Trap. Then off to Marquette. Museum, look around, admire. Drive to Munising. Stay overnight. Day 6: Tours, Look-a-bouts. Head to Newberry. Sleep. Day 7: Tahquamenon Falls and drive to Whitefish Point. Museum. Drive to Sault Ste. Marie. Rest. Day 8: Museum, Look around. Drive back to St Ignace. Rest. Does this look do-able? We will be visiting lighthouses and waterfalls along the way. Of course swimming too. We are taking the trip to get a feel of the area, to convince someone we need to move there (wife), and to get away from it all (unwind). Any major employers? I've been in plastic injection molding for the last few years, but only found 1 injection plant up there. Any other manufacturers? Recommendations for "making it?"
