Copper Harbor in most Northern town in Michigan. It is a major tourist attraction.  In summer, many summer residents return to enjoy the cool Lake Superior breezes.  Fort Wilkins State Historical Park is a popular destination for summer tourists. Fall offers one of the best fall color displays the state has to offer. Copper is also a popular destination for snowmobilers in the winter.  The city has several gift and fudge shops, a gas station, and a few bars. Ferry service is available to Isle Royale.

ATTENTION GEM & MINERAL HUNTERS.  Agates can be collected along the Lake Superior shore where they have been worn away from the lava flows by wave action. The shore road from Eagle Harbor to Copper Harbor provides access to a number of collecting localities. For the most part, these agates are not large or showy. The concentrically banded variety predominates; the mass type is extremely rare. Occasionally greenstones (chlorastrolites) are found.
