Menominee is located on the Upper Peninsula along the shores of Lake Michigan. The town is situated on the Menominee River, and along with neighboring Marinette, they are called "The River Cities Region." The colorful name "Menominee" comes from an Indian tribe, from whom the land was purchased by the federal government in 1833. Menominee did not incorporated as a city until 1883, after the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad reached the area. The town serves as the county seat for Menominee County, and is the gateway to the great north wilderness areas, the place "Where the Best of Michigan Begins." This region of Michigan, situated between the Upper Peninsula and Northeastern Wisconsin, is a vacationer's paradise; one of the most untouched areas in the country, with much of it the same as it was hundreds of years ago. Numerous activities are available here, including swimming, canoeing and fishing in pristine lakes and rivers, camping, hunting, sailing, hiking and golf. Less than a two-hour drive takes you to downhill skiing; cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing can also be found in the Menominee area. For exploring the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, a trip to The River Cities of Menominee and Marinette is a good choice for a vacation base. Restaurants are plentiful in the cities, everything from fast food to fine dining, and accommodations range from bed & breakfasts, hotels and motels and country inns.

Menominee Weather & Climate

The State of Michigan is divided into two peninsulas, joined together by a suspension bridge. Heavy snowfalls in winter are the norm in the Upper Peninsula and in the northern reaches of the Lower Peninsula. Surrounded by the Great Lakes helps moderate temperatures, but even so, the average highs in January are near 10 degrees in the northern areas, and around 20 degrees in the southern reaches. The lakes help cool the shorelines on summer days and humidity is rarely a problem. Statewide annual precipitation is near 35 inches, with higher amounts in the Upper Peninsula along the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shorelines. Michigan is on the fringe of the Midwest tornado belt, but as a general rule, the state experiences less of these storms than do other states.
