We are tooting our horn....and am proud of it ! Marquette is one of the twelve...and so far leading the pack. Way out front of Rockland, ME. which is second....St Louis is far down the list.
That said , I have enjoyed the historic areas in St. Louis , very impresive, but , as cities go , its very large, not a place you would want to consider , when compairing most of the others , as a place to live. Marquette has both...check it out...if you are interested in a small city , close to Paradise.
Etherway , go to the website, and vote for your favorite , the People DO have a choice after all!

My family used to vacation outside of Marquette, MI, in the summer. Lots of great camping and outdoorsy stuff. Don't think I'd be able to survive winter up there though...

Some of the wealthiest folks in North America have a place near Marquette. You would not know it , but its true......Winter ? ...yes I would say most who have a choice because of status , probably also have a townhouse in Chicago , and a beach house in Key West...or the Caymans. Its interesting however , winter has become our most active time of year , when all the motel-hotel rooms are filled , so ,I have to say lots...like the winter scean.........I would like to go to Key West now...for a little while...just for the contrast !

I believe it. My grandparents owned snowshoes, cross country skiis, and snowmobiles. We never got up there during the winter, since my parents were too nervous about being snowed in. My Dad was raised in Munising We used to camp in AuTrain and hike along the Pictured Rocks lake shore. Real estate is quite a bit less there than in southern Wisconsin, where most Chicagoans seem to buy a summer home.

My reference to wealthy folks owning homes near Marquette , refers to the silent affulent , those who want seculsion fro the outside world. Not the trendy Suburban Chicago types. You have to dig deep to understand this , its been going on for over 100 years...interesting history.

That would be the Huron Moutain club. So ritzy even one Henry Ford was not allowed in until he got MI to reroute a Highway. Louis Kaufman (father of modern banking, funded the Empire State building, and help form GM) was not allowed in either so he built Granot Loma.

Also , the Club property was picked to become a National Park...another thing the UberRich can influence. I have a neibor that goes into the Club a couple of times a year on business...I get reports. Marquette County has a proflic history , just one more reason we were picked by the Preservation Trust.
