Paradise is in Chippewa County, and in the Northern Region. Paradise is found northwest of Sault Ste Marie along Highway 123 near Whitefish Bay and Lake Superior, situated in Michigan's Upper Peninsula region.
Paradise was established in 1925.
This small town has a history of shipping, fishing, logging, blueberry and cranberry harvesting. The great fire of 1922 decimated the natural growth of the land and prepared it for one of Michigan's most productive wild blueberry regions.
Paradise has numerous popular attractions such as the Whitefish Point Lighthouse (fully restored and open for tours), The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Tahquamenon Falls, the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, fishing, hunting, camping, swimming, snowmobiling, agate hunting, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and the Annual Blueberry Festival in August.
