BOREALIS BEACH MUNICIPALITIES

A vibrant populous region that is still close to nature, Borealis Beach is defined by its location along the south shore of Lake Superior, with its beautiful beaches, marinas, public lands, and iconic ore docks. Marquette is the County seat and the largest town in the U.P., and has many of the assets of a much larger city, including Northern Michigan University, a regional hospital, an extensive park system, retail, and a thriving downtown. In the next two decades, the region will significantly benefit from managing growing pains, including increased tourism and shortages of family-sustaining jobs and affordable housing.
