Demand for rentals on the UP is lower than in past years, says vacation-home expert Karpinski. The towns of Houghton, Drummond Island, Munising, and St. Ignace offer some of the best deals, she adds.


Refreshingly untouristy, the UP is a perfect place to bond with family while bunking together in a waterfront cabin. Rentals are spacious. And there's plenty of shoreline to choose from: This 320-mile-long landmass is bordered by Lakes Superior, Huron, and Michigan. Fish off your dock and hope to catch dinner.


House rental: Find rentals at homeaway.com. For $1,795 a week, you can get a three-bedroom 1,600-square-foot cabin on Lake Superior that sleeps 10.
