Tahqua Scenic Byway Committee Plans September Meeting

The next Tahquamenon Scenic Byway committee meeting will be held Tuesday, September 18 at the Whitefish Township Community Center in Paradise.

A diverse group of individuals representing interested businesses, attractions, the DNR, MDOT and others meet quarterly to create and implement a plan to improve promotion of the Eastern Upper Peninsula (EUP), and the Newberry - Paradise area in particular, to visitors to the region.

The Tahquamenon Scenic Byway extends for 63 miles on M-123 from M-28 near Newberry to Paradise, and on to M-28.

Some of the attractions along the route include Hamilton Lake Nature Area, Luce County Historical Museum, Tahquamenon Logging Museum, Muskallonge Lake State Park, Two Hearted River, Crisp Point Lighthouse, Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls, Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, Curley Lewis Memorial Highway, Tahquamenon River Mouth, North Country National Scenic Trail and Eckerman Pond.

The committee would like to recruit more local businesses and attractions to become actively involved in its promotional efforts and use the tools and media materials that are available.

The increase in EUP tourism has built a need for methods to guide the visitors to local attractions. The goal is for area visitors to have a vacation that’s entertaining and enjoyable.

Anyone interested in marketing a business or attraction can join the Tahquamenon Scenic Byway Committee by contacting Rebecca Bolen at the EUP Regional Planning office at (906) 635-1581 or rbolen@eup-planning.org.
