Driving Insights for Houghton and the Keweenaw:

  • Exit Routes: Exiting CMX, you'll quickly reach US-41, the main thoroughfare that connects the southern and northern ends of the Keweenaw Peninsula.
  • Toll Information: Michigan's Upper Peninsula is primarily toll-free, ensuring smooth drives without the need for frequent stops.
  • Road Conditions: The roads around Houghton are well-maintained. However, in winter, the area receives significant snowfall, so always drive with caution.

Vehicle Choices for Houghton's Climate:

Houghton, like much of the Upper Peninsula, has distinctive seasons:

  1. Winter (December to February): Given the heavy snowfall, consider vehicles equipped with snow tires or all-wheel drive for enhanced safety.
  2. Spring (March to May) and Fall (September to November): Mild weather makes standard vehicles, such as sedans, ideal for these periods.
  3. Summer (June to August): Opt for a vehicle with effective air conditioning to comfortably navigate the warm and sunny days.
