About the Upper Peninsula

Michigan's Upper Peninsula has been on a steady growth pattern. The business industry is growing and the technology enhancements are vastly improving the economic climate. With schools such as Michigan Technological University in Houghton graduating students in such fields as engineering, computing, arts an Humanities and Social Sciences, more professionals are joining the workforce and new businesses are choosing to locate in this area that is well-known for its forests, wildlife and other outdoors activities.


Mining has always been a prominent industry in the Upper Peninsula as it is very rich in iron, copper, nickel and silver. Logging, forestry, construction, healthcare, and manufacturing, are other dominant industries, but tourism is the most important with several places for camping, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and hiking.
