The Keweenaw / Copper Country / Upper Peninsula of Michigan has been known for having some of the best air quality in the United States. And some have said on earth. Below is a sign that was famous in the past that said the Copper Country had the purest and most vitalizing air on earth.
Good air quality is good health for visitors and residents in the Keweenaw. We look to measure the air quality and provide data to show the air quality at any given time at the Lodge — and compare that air quality to other areas (e.g. whee you are visiting from).
