"Beautiful Waterfront Quaint Town" Escanaba by mwenn2100

Escanaba Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 9 photos

You may ask yourself why...

Dating a boy from Michigan was beneficial for my wanderlust... it may not have worked out but I did get to see a lot of Michigan! :) He had taken me back quite a few times to visit friends and relatives which is always fun. He is originally from Escanaba so we headed up there (and to Stonginton) for a weekend.

Or you may say to yourself where...

Escanaba Michican is located in the UP about an hour from the Wisconsin border. It is located right on Lake Michigan and appeared to me to be a small town reminiscent of the past. I was expecting a very small town, and was surprised that it was so big. The lakefront is beautiful and most of the major roads run along the lake with great views.

Dowtown Escanaba is basically one big road lined with restaurants, shops and other businesses. This was the part that reminded me of old fashioned towns as half of the businesses were closed and/or boarded up. It appears as though Escanaba is in need of some new blood and perhaps some revamping, but it was charming just the way it was.
