An August 2005 trip
to Munising by sightseeingsue
Quote: This magnificent little town nestled on Munising Bay, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is surrounded by majestic waterfalls and the Picture Rocks Natural shoreline.
Munising is located on Highway-28 in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, on the shores of Munising Bay. It’s a 2½-hour drive from the Mackinaw Bridge, 6½ hours from Grand Rapids, or 8 hours from Detroit. The best way to get around town depends on the season.
Snowmobiles rule the winter months, while cars with four-wheeled-drive are used in the other months. The roads in town are paved, but you will definitely run across some dirt roads while exploring the area. Some are in good shape while others off the beaten’ path are best used for dirt biking. The road crews are used to the heavy snow this town gets, so roads are usually in good driving condition even after a heavy snowstorm. This town is a breeze to get around in, but just remember to keep you eyes on the road when you drive as you may find yourself peeking out off into the bay… it’s that beautiful.
