Each year, just as the snow melts and the earth thaws from another cold Michigan winter, we see the first blossoms of life. New flowers bloom, birds return with a song and you should be coming to see us, too! Spring in Michigan is a vibrant time to explore the outdoors and full of activity, especially here in Newberry and Tahquamenon Country!
Spend hours hiking and bird watching along the Lake Superior Birding Trail. One of the prime spots is Whitefish Point, which has acreage that is part of the Seney National Wildlife Refuge. This spot is a destination for migrating birds returning back after winter, so there is always a chance to see a new species in this season. Spring in Michigan is also the perfect opportunity to spend time fishing our waters, watching for other wildlife around. You may see a moose!
It wouldn’t be spring without some waterfall watching, and it wouldn’t be waterfall watching without visiting Tahquamenon Falls. The Upper Falls roar with more life than before as spring returns to Michigan. Take the 94 steps down to the viewing deck for an up-close experience. You’ll feel the misty spray of the water crashing below you! Don’t forget to give the Lower Falls a visit, too. These smaller falls cascade around an island that you can row out to. As a hint of what’s to come in the summer, dip your toes into the refreshingly cool water while on your hike.
While here, stop in our museums and learn fascinating stories about harrowing Great Lakes shipwrecks, Tahquamenon Falls’ role in the lumber industry and Luce County history. You can also visit our historic lighthouses along the coast, freshly painted with a blue sky backdrop from the seasons’ change. Pick more activities from the subjects below!
A visit to Newberry in the spring means bustling wildlife, fantastic hikes and Tahquamenon Falls at its roaring peak. Start planning your spring visit today!
