About the Northern Lower Penisula
Northern Michigan, or more properly the Northern Lower Peninsula, is a region of Michigan, popular as a tourist destination, resort area, and vacation area.
It is home to several small-to medium-sized cities, extensive state and national forests, lakes and rivers, and a large portion of Great Lakes shoreline. Life is simple but rich, surrounded by nature, beautiful lakes and forests and good and friendly folks.
Home to the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, as well as several State forests and campgrounds, the region has a significant seasonal population much like other regions that depend on tourism as their main industry. Industries and exports include potatoes, cement-making, mining, natural gas extraction and food processing.
