Marquette is located in the upper peninsula of Michigan and is one of the largest cities in the U.P. It is also home to Northern Michigan University and was listed as one of the top 10 places to retire in the United States. The town has about 22,000 people living there and every summer, tourists flock to the city to enjoy great views of Lake Superior or maybe go for a small hike up Sugarloaf. Aside from hundreds of fun outdoor activities, Marquette also offers collegiate hockey games, the UP200 Sled Dog races in February and a variety of great local restaurants.
