Paradise is located in Michigan’s Chippewa County on the northeast portion on the Upper Peninsula about 70 miles (112 km) northwest of the Mackinac Bridge and 60 miles (97 km) from Sault Ste Marie. It was founded in 1925 and is a gateway to the popular Tahquamenon Falls State Park as well as Whitefish Point that is host to the Great Lake Shipwreck Museum, the Whitefish Point Lighthouse and the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory. Paradise comes to life mid-March as the snow begins to melt and birds and bird watchers arrive. The spring migration lasts about two months and is monitored by the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory.
Paradise is also known as the wild blueberry capital of Michigan and holds a Wild Blueberry Festival held in mid-August. Autumn brings a beautiful burst of fall colors as tress turn their vibrant shades of red and orange. Cranberries are ready to be picked at the 100 year old Cranberry Farm. With so much to explore, uncover, and discover, Paradise is a must on the Lake Superior Circle Tour.
