Marquette isn’t that Midwest, it’s this one…
When jobs go mobile, it’s time to put down roots.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to truly embrace a Northern lifestyle? One grounded in community, outdoor recreation, and an embrace of sustainable balance next to the world’s largest freshwater source? If your job has gone mobile or you’ve joined the thousands of individuals who are re-evaluating their priorities, consider putting down roots in Marquette, Michigan.
Marquette is the largest city in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with a population 20,000 strong. Nestled between the foothills of the Huron Mountains and the southern shoreline of Lake Superior our most humble assets are space, community, and fresh air. Here, being remote physically and digitally doesn’t feel far removed. Whether you’re working from the comforts of a trusty van, looking for a week-long workcation, or finding a place to plant your roots: Make it Marquette.
With 83 miles of lakeshore, 40+ miles of trails, and a plethora of opportunity within our community it's no wonder a Northern lifestyle may be beckoning to you.
