Paradise is a pretty little town located at the northeastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula region along the shores of Lake Superior. Situated along the eastern shoreline of Whitefish Bay, Paradise has sandy beaches and a beautiful view of Canada across the Bay. The area surrounding Paradise is filled with recreational opportunities, from a stroll along the beach rock hunting and beachcombing, to swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking and biking on old logging trails. In wintertime there are hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails, and cross-country skiing at Paradise Pathway and Tahquamenon Falls, ice fishing, snowshoeing and dog sledding. Tahquamenon Falls State Park is about 12 miles west of Paradise and encompasses almost 40,000 acres and provides an extensive system of trails for hiking. The highlight of the park is the Tahquamenon Falls, one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. The Upper Falls are 50 feet high and more than 200 feet wide. The Lower Falls are a series of cascades and rapids divided by an island. The park also offers camping and a variety of other recreational opportunities. The Shipwreck Historical Museum at Whitefish Point is 11 miles north of Paradise, and has displays that show artifacts and pictures of Great Lakes shipping disasters. Nearby is the Whitefish Point Lighthouse, the oldest working lighthouse on Lake Superior, which was built in 1849. The meadows and plains surrounding Paradise are filled with wild blueberries, and Paradise is home to the annual Wild Blueberry Festival, usually held in mid-August.

Paradise Weather & Climate

Michigan's Upper Peninsula enjoys moderate summers and cold winters. For decades, visitors have been coming to this area to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cooling effect of the lake breezes. The Lakes affect all areas of the weather, and summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the Lakes chill the air near the earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. In winter, the area becomes a wonderland of ice and snow, with an average of between 40-70 inches of snow, depending on location. Rainfall in upper Michigan is generally around 30 inches per year, with occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. Autumn is sunny with mild days and cool nights - too cold for swimming, but just right for other activities such as fall color tours, antiquing, golfing, and exploring the lake-studded countryside.
