The Upper Peninsula of Michigan – also known as Upper Michigan or just “The U.P.” – is the northern landmass of Michigan; it is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula touches three of the Great Lakes: Lake Michigan, Lake Huron and Lake Superior.

The Upper Peninsula contains 29% of the land area of Michigan but just 3% of its total population. Residents are called Yoopers and have a strong regional identity. Because of the surrounding waters and northern latitude, it receives more snow than most of the eastern U.S.
