We began our self guided car trip at the lighthouse. I couldn't believe people can walk out to the base of the lighthouse. My photo explains it. Very impressive! The lake waters are crystal clear and I could have sat here all day. But there were more stops including cliffs, gorgeous sunset point and even a beach! Plenty to see... More

We just drove through on a quiet spring day, and were amazed by the views of Lake Superior and other aspects of what made Marquette a great city. This is a nice place to visit and maybe even spend an entire day.

There is a nice trail all around the island. At the far end of the island the trail becomes unpaved and rough but much of the trail is paved and easy for anyone. There are many places where you could stretch out on a rock or a beach and dip your feet in Lake Superior. There are many picnic areas,... More

Great place to hike, picnic, or just drive through to enjoy the views of Lake Superior. Plenty of places to pull off the road to hike. View from Sunset Point, at sunset, were amazing.

If it's your first time to Marquette, MI, the first place to see is Presque Isle! You can either walk or drive the 2k loop. There are many interior hiking trails. Jutting out into Lake Superior, "the island", as locals call it is a great place to watch the waves, sometimes in the fall you will see some fool hardy... More

This is a lovely park with great views. Driving through at sunset was beautiful and relaxing. It's a very nice, well kept up area with times set up for walkers, people on bikes, and cars to use the island. Very nice.

Take a slow drive around Presque Isle Park. Make sure to pull off the road, get out and walk so you can look over the edge into Superior. The water is crystal clear and mesmerizing!! Also, be sure the get out of the car and walk to black rock cove. If your more adventurous, be sure to walk out on... More

Loved Presque when I attended NMU-my very favorite spot to go in the whole city. So special to bring my family there to experience the beauty and power of Lake Superior. Driving through in the summer the woods are truly ethereal. Beautiful cliffs, tucked away coves, and views worthy of all the pictures you can take. Love this place 💗

Of course the Lake Superior coast is full of great views but Presque Isle park is especially beautiful. In the winter you can walk down the road closed to cars to the Black Rocks about 1 mile each way or walk out onto the ice in the small inlet and see the oredocks. Gorgeous all the time.
