You will find that year round outdoor activities abound in this area. You can fish off the shore for Lake Michigan's Salmon, Trout, Walleye, and Pike. Fishing has been a valuable industry on the Peninsula since the 1850'S when French fishermen founded quaint fishing villages that remain today. Besides Fishing, Hiking, Boating, and Swimming here are great, the area is also known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks. This is a Bird Watchers Paradise. Because many smaller birds won't cross bodies of water if they cannot see land on the other side, the chain of islands extending from Michigan's Garden Peninsula to Wisconsin's Door Peninsula, allows birds to work their way south down the Peninsula, then "island hop" to Wisconsin - making it great for viewing the birds migrating up the peninsula in the spring, and down in the fall.
In the late 1860'S a smelting plant site, named Fayette, was built on the Peninsula. After the plant closed the State of Michigan purchased and restored the "ghost" town, naming it the Fayette State Park. It attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year resulting in a growing tourism industry. Farming, commercial fishing, logging, and tourism are all part of the areas current economic backbone.
