Destination: Marquette, Michigan
Featured on Lake Superior Cruises
Marquette cruises take you to a peaceful lakeside city with a love for deep water fishing. Marquette is a popular place for fisherman, but has quite a bit more to offer too. When your Great Lakes cruise visits the city, you'll be able to choose between beaches, parks, historic locations, and hikes. Though it flies under the radar, Marquette is a beautiful town and was even rated in the top 10 US cities to retire to by CBS MoneyWatch in 2012.
A mainstay for the Great Lakes, Marquette is built around its harbor. Because of this, Marquette harbor cruises are also a fun way to see the town. Often using a smaller vessel than your cruise ship, you'll be able to tour the harbor's waters while seeing all the nooks and crannies that line Marquette's part of Lake Superior.

Things to do in Marquette, MI
Sugarloaf Mountain is a popular hiking spot just outside the city of Marquette. A favorite among cruisers looking to get into nature, Sugarloaf features two short trails -- one easier and the other slightly more difficult -- that'll take you to phenomenal views of Lake Superior.
Presque Isle Park
Marquette's most popular park, Presque Isle Park was designed by the same person that did Central Park in New York City, NY. It features over 300 acres to explore, with the goal of getting its visitors in touch with nature. Though you can easily spend a whole day at the park, we highly recommend it for at least a quick picnic during your day in Marquette.
Marquette Harbor Lighthouse
One of the first things you'll see on Marquette cruises, this lighthouse was built in 1866 to guide all the ships coming into the harbor. It still works today and is ran by the Marquette Maritime Museum, which is just a few blocks away. Touring the lighthouse is like going back in time, and is sure to be a treat for history lovers.
