Secret Upper Peninsula: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure

How did a sparsely populated landmass surrounded by Great Lakes and completely separated from the rest of the state become the Upper Peninsula of Michigan? At the end of each winter what do Yoopers—those hardy souls who call the UP home—measure with a 30-foot tall “thermometer?” And should you put ketchup or gravy on a pasty? You’ll find the answers to these questions and many more in Secret Upper Peninsula: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure.

You may know that the UP inspired Longfellow’s “The Song of Hiawatha,” but what about works by Ernest Hemingway and Da Yoopers? Find out where a popular Chicago cartoonist summered in a cottage shaped like a giant pickle barrel, and where a ghost town comes alive once a year for a gathering of the descendants of copper mining families. Discover why believers say the mysterious Paulding Light is the lantern of a railroad man who perished on the tracks, or where to find the world’s longest porch and one of the least-visited National Parks. Local author Kath Usitalo takes you deep into the densely forested peninsula that might seem like one big, isolated secret to an outsider. Delve into this insider’s guide to learn about the fascinating quirks and curiosities of the land of Gitche Gumee.

About the Author:
Bi-peninsular Kath Usitalo grew up in Detroit and is now at home in the Upper Peninsula near Naubinway, at the northernmost point of Lake Michigan. She explores, writes about, and photographs the Great Lakes State for print and online publications and her own e-zine, GreatLakesGazette.com. Secret Upper Peninsula is a natural companion to her Reedy Press books 100 Things to Do in the Upper Peninsula Before You Die and 100 Things to Do on Mackinac Island Before You Die.

100 Things to Do in Santa Cruz Before You Die

Santa Cruz, with its gentle ocean waves crashing against pristine shores, is a West Coast beach town unlike any other. Just seventy-five miles south of San Francisco, this laid-back community has been a popular vacation destination for more than a century. With 100 Things to Do in Santa Cruz Before You Die, you’ll find all the recommendations you need to explore this splendid oasis. Whether you’re coming for the surf, the family-friendly Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk—one of the oldest seaside amusement parks in California—the magnificent redwood forests, or the up-and-coming beer and wine scene, you’re in for an unforgettable experience.

After you’ve checked off all of the usual tourist stops, you’ll be wanting more! Beyond the popular beaches and downtown’s Pacific Ave., there are tons of burgeoning neighborhoods to be explored. Eat and drink like a local at one of the many innovative restaurants, bars, pubs, and lounges around town. Get down at quirky music venues and chill dive bars. Be inspired at the eclectic mix of galleries and boutiques selling one-of-a-kind pieces. Whatever you do in Santa Cruz, it’s all about slowing down, relaxing, and going with the flow.

Four local authors combined their years of experience in the area to create this indispensable resource for the best Santa Cruz experiences, activities, and events year-round. Their carefully curated itineraries and insights make for an awe-inspiring beach getaway like you’ve never had before.

About the Authors: 
Leslie Chavez, Sara Clevenger, Dede Harrington, and Misty Oliver came to Santa Cruz for different reasons but eventually found themselves working together at Beach House Rentals just outside of Santa Cruz. They love to support the community by sharing travel and tourism recommendations and never tire of exploring the latest attractions in and around Santa Cruz.
