Cute little town along Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan. There can be a lot of snow in the winter and in the summer Lake Superior is still cold. However, there are many great beaches and the town contains Northern Michigan University. The locals are always friendly and willing to help.

One of my favorite places there is Black Rocks Brewery, it has a great atmosphere and patio area. Although, I wish they served lunch along with the beer. If you are going hiking around Marquette make sure you bring bug spray!

I grew up in Marquette - an absolutely perfect place to spend your childhood. Definitely a sheltered and isolated place, but still, I loved growing up there.

I am not a big outdoorsman, but lots of people love to do the hunt/fish/camp thing. Otherwise, there is a surprising amount of culture in Marquette, decent places to have a drink, a beautiful lakeshore, etc.
