"Heart of Gold" It's another grade A Upper Peninsula journey for team UTR!! If you haven’t been to Michigan’s beautiful upper peninsula yet … what’s your excuse this time? You’re afraid of bridges … you don’t like clean air … your dog ate your drivers license. Well for gosh sakes, cut it out … Michigan’s incredible UP is what I like to call “our own out west” ... and it’s right here. From pristine forests and waterfalls, to fabulous art and fantastic food finds, everything you need for a true Michigan adventure is all over the UP. Even if you’re a city-slicker … there’s tons of energy, culture, history and architecture up here to keep you happily hopping from town to town. It truly is a treasure that more of us low-plains flat- landers need to discover.
