What besides Pictured Rock in UP?

Plan on visiting Pictured Rock in early June, including a boat tour, beaches, waterfalls, etc.. What other sights should we see in the UP? We enjoy scenic drives, sight seeing and hikes that are easy and no more than 1 mile. Not interested in shopping or museum. Have as much time as needed.

how much time you got?????????????????????????????????

and how much driving are you willing to do????

if only a coupla days, or you don't wanna drive much, then pict rocks and maybe a few close by attractions are your options....

if you got a week or more and willing to drive 4-500 miles, then yes, there are tons of things to see and do.........you will be in G-d's Country.

once we get that info, we can help you.

Tahquamenon Falls is usually considered one of the top sights in the UP. They also say the Porcupine Mountains are worth a visit.

We have around 10 days and are willing to do plenty of driving. Don't usually have a plan on where we stay. We tend to just sort of wing it. Open to any ideas. Don't like to spend a lot to sleep someplace. Prefer less expensive accommodations that are clean, comfortable and safe.

i assume you're coming from the lower P.... if so, here's a list of my picks more or less from east to west:

mack island, SOO locks, tahq falls, whitefish point maritime museum, pictured rocks (and the sights along highway H-58), big spring, grand island, piers gorge, laughing whitefish falls, marquette, big bay (go up there for lunch), keewauna peninsula/brockway mtn drive, porkies/presque isle waterfall area.... additionally, you could continue west to the apostles in wisc, OR, spend 2 nites out on isle royale (not cheap, but worth it once in a lifetime)......
