Hancock is located on the “sunny side” of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge on the north shore of the Keweenaw Waterway. Home to Finlandia University, Michigan’s northern most city offers travelers a great selection of local restaurants, culture, and the outdoors. Head north on US 41 to reach the Historic Quincy Mine, one of the Keweenaw’s most beloved historic attractions or take some time explore the Keweenaw’s Finnish heritage at Finlandia’s Finnish-American Heritage Center. Nearby outdoor attractions include Hancock Beach, McLain State Park, and the Maasto Hiihto & Churning Rapids Trail System. For winter downhill enthusiasts, Michigan’s oldest ski resort, Mont Ripley, is a short drive east on M-26.
