How to get to Munising in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan

The city of Munising is set on the southern Lake Superior shoreline in the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan. It’s centrally located in the U.P. and is reachable by car, plane or boat. During the winter season, Munising is well-known for its incredible snowmobiling and many main trails run right through town. When there isn’t snow, some of these same trails can be used by ORVs and make this Upper Peninsula town a popular destination.
