"Munising – A City on a Lake and In a Forest"

The trip getting to Munising may be long, but I assure you that it is well worth the effort. The city sits directly on the ice cold, crystal clear waters of the Lake Superior, and it is literally right inside Hiawatha National Forest. If one massive forest isn’t enough to satisfy your thirst for nature, there is also Gwinn State Forest Area, Sault Ste. Marie State Forest and Newberry State Forest Area, just to name a few.

However, the main attraction to Munising is the countless waterfalls, and I assure you, they will all take your breath away. The first time you see one frozen and you can literally walk behind it, you will never want to leave.

Munising is a tiny city, a few thousand people at the most. The downtown area is cute with locally owned stores and restaurants, but if you lived here, I’m guessing you would have to venture into Sault Ste. Marie for some amenities.

Although hotels can be costly in the area, housing is pretty cheap. There are a couple of very small schools and I don’t know if they even have a police station or not; either way, they certainly do not need one. I think Munising is quite possibly one of the most beautiful cities in the country!
