Facilities look to adapt as tourism surges at Pictured Rocks

Jul 5, 2016

 

Pictured Rocks is the main tourist attraction in Munising, Michigan. But a surge in tourism has created challenges for the Munising community.

Some 723,000 tourists appeared last year alone, and the area is struggling to accommodate so many people while maintaining its quality of life.

Munising Mayor Rod DesJardins joined us to talk about how tourism has changed life in the communities near Pictured Rocks.
