Cruisin’ Menominee County
For many bikers their first look at the U.P. is when they cross the Marinette-Menominee Bridge. Actually most riders coming into the U.P. will find themselves crossing a bridge, just some bridges are bigger than others. Immediately after you cross the bridge their is a Michigan Welcome Center on your right. The historical log cabin is a great place to pick up information and use the bathroom.
There are two main north-south roads that make their way through Menominee County. One is Hwy 41 which eventually hooks up with US-2 in Powers. The other is Hwy M-35 and I recommend this road because it takes you along the Lake Michigan lakeshore offering more than one great location to pull over and enjoy some beach time.
Highway M-35 begins just north of Menominee, Michigan and continues all the way up to Highway M-28 near Negaunee, Michigan. Through Menominee County M-35 parallels the Lake Michigan shoreline offering many points where you can pull over and enjoy some quiet beach time.
If you have a Michigan State Park sticker, the J.W. Wells State Park is about 30 minutes of Menominee and offers some nice camping, beach and bathroom facilities.
