Considered one of the greatest places in America for outdoor enthusiasts to live, Marquette offers it all from skiing, to hiking, to fishing, to hunting, to cycling and so much more. The largest city in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Marquette is the focus for new business growth as well as U.P.-wide events such as the U.P. 200 sled dog race and the Ore to Shore bicycle ride. Marquette is home to Peter White Public Library, the Kaufman Auditorium, the Marquette Maritime Museum and a Children's Museum as well as Northern Michigan University. The city was originally constructed as a shipping port for the mines further inland. It has maintained its maritime charm, especially the Lower Harbor Park and downtown district.
