Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is a great place to bring school groups. The park encompasses the wild and beautiful shoreline along the south shore of Lake Superior between the communities of Munising and Grand Marais, Michigan. Its main features include spectacular cliffs, sand dunes, pristine beaches, waterfalls, inland lakes, and various northern forest habitats. Stories and artifacts of human history involving early Native Americans, lake travel, lumbering, and other now abandoned industries are found throughout the lakeshore, including an 1874 light station and several maritime exhibits. Wonderful learning opportunities abound for students of all ages!
