Activities & Local Attractions: 
•    Copper Harbor: At the very tip of the Keweenaw peninsula. Very scenic & picturesque. Checkout Fort Wilkins Historic State Park while you are there
•    A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum: Great minerals & exhibits
•    Quincy Mine Tour: This is a really great guided tour of the Quincy mine. Go into a mine that was active & producing copper during the Civil War. Very impressive!
•    Delaware Copper Mine Tours: Self-guided tour of the Delaware mine. Lots of stairs & less polished than the Quincy mine, but still awesome to go underground & see the life of a miner.
•    Calumet Waterworks Park: Great beach park with great west views. Has both rocks & sand, so there is something for everyone. Look for agates, yooperlites, & fossils.
•    5 Mile Point Road: Beautiful drive along the west shore of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Stop at Eagle Harbor & the Jam Lady & The Jampot bakery. Careful of the fruitcake…it is boozy!
•    Brockway Mountain: Beautiful vistas from the highest point in the Keweenaw. Great for Fall colors.
•    Isle Royal:  Take a ferry or seaplane from downtown Houghton or Copper Harbor to Isle Royal. This is not a quick day trip as the shortest ferry trip is 3.5 hr. long. The island is very remote & rural but has great  hikes & camping. 
•    Gratiot River Park: Great rock picking beach. Lots of agates!
•    Downhill Skiing:  There are several downhill ski options in the area (Mt Ripley & Mt Bohemia). 
•    Cross Country Skiing/snowshoe/mountain bike trails: The Keweenaw has many great trails that can be used year-round. In summer, these are great mountain biking trails. In winter, these are great for cross country skiing or snowshoeing.
