I love how much of an active city Marquette is! Even in the winter, people who live there take FULL advantage of the cold and snowy winter. I enjoy the amount of parks they have for a quick run or stroll, and of course the view of Lake Superior is perfection!
Friendly and generous neighbors and community. Very family oriented with many activities available to create long-lasting friendships!
