Welcome to Paradise

In case you did not know, Paradise is in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on the shores of Lake Superior. It may not be quite as you envisioned it.

Paradise has a tiny school

A library

A grocery store

A coffee shop

and a Chamber if Commerce tourist center

They have their own language and food. The Michigan upper peninsula is known as “da UP”. The people who live here are called “yoopers” and they call folks who live in lower Michigan ” trolls” cause they live under the (Mackinac) bridge.

They are fond of eating pasties filled with beef, carrots and potatoes, a lot like empanadas.

The main pastimes here are hunting, fishing, camping and snowmobiling. Paradise is nothing like Ithaca, except there are beautiful waterfall here too.
