As an option, if you wish to embark on a day trip that involves a train ride and riverboat cruise, Tahquamenon Falls Riverboat Tours is perfect for you!
One of the options is a 6 1/2 hour wilderness tour that begins with a 35 minute narrow gauge train ride, followed by a 2 hour, narrated riverboat cruise. After reaching the rapids above the falls, the riverboat docks for one hour and fifteen minutes so you can embark on a 5/8 mile nature hike to see the upper Tahquamenon Falls.
After the stopover, the riverboat and train retrace their route back to Soo Junction. At the time of this writing, this tour ran from July 1 - October 3, departing from Soo Junction, MI at 10:30 AM and returning at 5:00 PM. Check their website to book your tickets and get up to date information.

Friends, if you are only going to do one thing this summer, GO TO KITCH-ITI-KIPI! We were blown away by its beauty!
What is it? Kitch-iti-kipi is Michigan's largest natural spring that is crystal clear and full of fish!
The spring delivers 16,000 gallons per minute! HOLY MOLY!
Hop aboard the raft that will take you across the bubbling emerald green springs. I love the middle viewing area as the water is so crystal clear! It offers a great view of the fish and the magical bubbling springs. The raft has a roof so you are able to see the fish very clearly without the glare from the sun.
