Michigan's Upper Peninsula, commonly referred to as "The U.P.", is connected to the rest of Michigan only by the famous Mackinac Bridge. Physically, we live on a peninsula jutting out of northeastern Wisconsin.
We are surrounded on three sides by water, with Lake Superior to the north, Lake Michigan to the south, and Lake Huron to the east.
The map of the US on the right shows the U.P. shaded in a darker color.
Finally, the maps of Michigan below show the MAHA District boundaries for the entire state, and the counties in the U.P. Mackinac and Chippewa Counties are in MAHA District 7, while the remaining U.P. Counties are in District 8.
