Things are "different" in the UP ! Once you get out of St Ignace there is some beautiful landscape and beaches but not much else.

The Leelanau Peninsula around Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore and Traverse City is awesome. Many opportunities for lovely beaches and bike riding. Have you checked out 'Rails to Trails' site for bike paths.

Yes, Sleeping Bear, Traverse City, Petoskey, the Soo, Whitefish Point, all great places for multitude of things to do.

Kayaking or tubing, great hikes, smaller beaches, shopping, rockhounding, Great Lakes museums...

As already mentioned, there are many things to see and do. Do you have a tentative area to visit (UP and or LP) and when do you plan on being here?

We really like Petoskey. Easy access to bike trail - actually right across the road from Petoskey RV Resort. Trail runs south to Charlevoix, northwest to Harbor Springs & due north to Mackinaw, for truly ambitious riders.

A ride to Harbor Springs for a Gurney's Train Wreck sandwich is my favorite lunch!

We visited both towns recently and well worth the visit. Gurneys food was great :-)

You will not be disappointed with the UP. We crossed the bridge on Labor Day and headed for Copper country and then camped all along Superior. Shipwreck museum is a must stop in Whitefish Point. Good camping on the way back to the bridge. We spent about 3 weeks there, took in Pictured Rocks and some other great sights. Watch out for the gales November.
Here we are camped on Superior.

We spent a week at the Log Cabin Campground outside of Curtis MI in the UP.
https://www.uplogcabin.com/
We found it a great place with pull thru FHU sites. Curtis is somewhat centrally located in the UP lots to do there and the area.
