Da Yoopers Tourist Trap, Ishpeming, MI

5 of 36

For the uninitiated, a Yooper is someone who lives in
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (the U.P.), which is covered in snow nearly half the
year. Da Yoopers Tourist Trap is a celebration of hinterland innovations,
including Big Ernie, the world’s largest working rifle (35 feet and 4,000 pounds)
and Da Two-Holer Outhouse. Don’t leave without a tchotchke from the gift
shop—everything from bullet-hole stickers (which promise to “impress the babes”)
to belly-button lint brushes. —Jessica Su
