Marquette Airport Guide

Strangely, the iron ore industry attracts visitors to the city today. Many come to marvel at the size and operation of the huge ships as they dock at the port. The lake is the best draw though. Accessed at several points through the city, you can simply sit and look at it or take a small boat to row on it or catch a Lake Superior cruise ship and spend the day gliding around the coast. Marquette is a favourite haunt for mountain bikers with hundreds of miles of trails, many of them very testing and with two major mountain bike races each year including the ‘Ore to Shore’ where cyclists travel from the mines to the lakeside, a journey of 25 miles over very rough terrain.

Route 553 takes you north from Sawyer International Airport into the heart of Marquette. The journey is around 30 minutes.


Marquette Airport Parking

Sawyer International Airport Car Parking
As a small airport, parking is limited but there’s still plenty for all. It’s simply arranged as short term next to the terminal, longer term a little walk away and there’s closer parking for the less mobile.


Marquette Airport Flight Information

Sawyer International Airport Flight information
Sawyer International serves the city of Marquette in Michigan and is a small airport with flights from only four destinations. That’s immaterial though as flights from elsewhere in the States and outside the US can connect through Chicago.

You are very limited as to hotels in Marquette with the best two being America’s Best Value Inn at $39 a night or the apartments at Woodside Condominiums at $42 a night. Both are fine but not luxurious.

Marquette Info

Marquette was built around the iron industry that sprang up from the ore deposits found locally. Despite the first concern failing, subsequent companies flourished and even with it producing and shipping tons of iron and ore each year, it rather bizarrely became a tourist resort with people drawn by the clean, refreshing waters of Lake Superior and the great summer climate. The city continues to be very heavily involved in the iron industry today.

Marquette Trivia:
  • Marquette is the third snowiest city in the US
  • Despite the cold, it was voted one of the ten best places to retire in the US
  • In 1844 the city was founded to take advantage of the iron ore deposits nearby
  • It was originally called New Worcester but the name was changed to Marquette five years later
