The Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls, branded the “Root Beer Falls” are beautiful all year long. Our favorite time to visit “The Falls” is during the winter months when the surrounding trees are covered with white powder, icicles have formed at the top of the 50 foot drop and the bottom is rich and frothy like a yummy root beer float. While there, enjoy dinner at the Tahquamenon Falls Brewery and Pub, a local microbrewery.
