A Memorable Day Trip to Tahquamenon Falls, a Bear Ranch and a UP Pasty at a Pub

Join us on an unforgettable journey as we explore the breathtaking beauty of Tahquamenon Falls, get up close with rescued bears at Oswald's Bear Ranch, and savor local flavors at the Tahquamenon Falls Brewery & Pub.

Tahquamenon Falls

Michigan has over 300 waterfalls but every one of them is located up in the Upper Peninsula.  I chose to visit this one first because of the unique color which is actually the iron that gives it this gold/orange glow.  There are both upper and lower falls to view and it's an easy walk to both of them.  Even with pups in hand.
