Escanaba

If you're a fan of the Upper Peninsula and all that it offers, than Escanaba is the place to be. Not only is it home to outstanding fishing and hiking, but also to some of the U.P.'s home-grown businesses like Sayklly's Chocolates and Marble Arms. Escanaba features a more temperate climate than much of the Upper Peninsula, giving it a year-round splendor, though winter activities do not suffer and ice fishing "shanty towns" sprout up across Bay de Noc. The city is home to the Escanaba Eskymos as well as Bay College.
