Tahquamenon Falls … I know about it … you know about it … we all know about it … Ah … but, have you been to see it yet? Yea … me either.

Just west of the little town of Paradise in the eastern UP is one of the most beautiful places in Michigan … and yep … I’ve never been there. So to finally get up close and personal with Tahquamenon Falls, I hooked up with Park Ranger Theresa Neal who started by showing me Tahquamenon’s incredibly awesome lower falls.

Once you’re on the island, you’re literally surrounded by tons of cascading waterfalls … and the natural beauty along the quarter mile trail around the island is breathtaking. The lower falls is something a lot of people miss entirely … and that’s to bad … I don’t think I’ve ever been in a more beautiful place anywhere. Totally worth the trip.

Well, now it was time to see the grand daddy himself … and one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. So, and after a beautiful and hardy hike upriver … there it was. And, I was impressed …

There’s a plethora of places along the gorge to view the falls … and as we checked them all our, I couldn’t help but think – this is something your family really needs to see. Next time you’re planning a trip, skip the airport and check out Tahquamenon Falls State Park in the UP. It’s a tremendous sight to see … but to see it … ya gotta get up here.
