Writing an article about the Keweenaw but would like to see the area first hand first?  The Visit Keweenaw Team is more than happy to have you and can even help with accommodations, itineraries and tours.

Please review our guidelines for assisting travel writers.  Media assistance depends on availability and is handled on a case by case basis.  

Travel Support Provided:

  • Press Access: Team members will work with the writer to develop a customized itinerary of attractions, cultural venues and other points of interest based on your interests and story angles.  Team members will arrange for the writer’s admission to the attractions, activities and events included in the itinerary, and will provide assistance with meals included on the itinerary.  A guide from Visit Keweenaw will accompany journalists during their visit.
  • Lodging: Visit Keweenaw can provide complimentary rooms for up to two nights.  If the writer has not been preauthorized, then it is up to the individual property to decide if services will be complimentary or at a reduced rate.  Accommodations are subject to availability.

  • Ground Transportation: Writers are responsible for their own transportation while in Houghton and Keweenaw County.  Rental cars are the responsibility of the writer, but we are happy to supply a list of local rental companies.  However, in most cases a team member will accompany the writer and can provide transportation to locations and amenities identified on the official itinerary.

For Travel Support Consideration, media members should provide:

  • Letter of assignment (if working for a specific publication).
  • Name of publications to which you plan to submit articles and their circulation numbers.
  • Some transportation can be provided by the CVB if needed, but prior arrangement will be required and is not guaranteed.


  • We recommend that working media professionals consider travel Sunday through Thursday as weekends typically have the highest occupancy demand for area accommodations and attractions.
  • Travel support will only be provided for the media member and cannot be used for expenses incurred by anyone traveling with the writer.

For questions or more information, contact our office or give us a call at 906.337.4579.
