Sunrise at Sunset Point? Yes, you read that correctly. The beloved and always popular sunset destination at Presque Isle in Marquette, also offers a view of sunrise throughout the summer.

The primary question here is, why does Presque Isle have a Sunset Point and not a Sunrise Point?

My hypothesis is because Marquette is clearly a sunrise town. With a shoreline sloping from Northwest to Southeast, there are countless locations to watch sunrise. For the same reason, there are only a few locations to watch the sunset over the open water. Even so, sunset here sets behind the land rather than the open water of the Lake Superior shoreline.
