Marquette Michigan

I've only been to Marquette about twice in my lifetime. Each time on the way to somewhere else. Which is sad really as I've been reading about the area and it's very rich in history and activities. Matter of fact more then most people know. Many people have gone to school at NMU only to return later to live because of Marquette's high quality of life. If you can overlook the annual snowfall that is! But even that is a bonus if you like to ski and snowshoe. And then there is that huge Superior Dome on the NMU campus for sporting events. More about Marquette area in future postings, stay tuned. This from the AP WIRE:

MARQUETTE - Citing Marquette's "dynamic neighborhoods, a rich architectural heritage, cultural diversity and a strong commitment to historic preservation," the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Marquette to an exclusive list of destination cities.
As one of the trust's 2010 Dozen Distinctive Destinations, Marquette is in line for national media attention and will now compete in an online voting contest to determine a Fan Favorite award.
In a prepared statement, Richard Moe, president of NTHP, praised Marquette for its history and scenery. "Marquette is a must-see for travelers looking to get off the beaten path," he said. "Marquette offers visitors a chance to enjoy history, art, outdoor activities and spectacular natural resources."
