The Web  site was developed in Responsive Design, created to be compatible on everything from computers to mobile devices, ensuring an optimal viewing experience whether the viewer is on the go or has time to browse.

The primary mission of the UPTRA Web site is to provide travel consumers with up-to-date travel information on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The site allows all visitors to access in-depth information about the destination that will influence prospective leisure travel planners and tour operators to choose destinations in the Upper Peninsula for a day trip and/or overnight visit. The Web site content is the key in sparking and keeping the visitors’ interest by providing a wealth of information on activities and hospitality related services.

A feature of the UPTRA Web site is the Plan Your Trip Itinerary section.  This application was included within the UPTRA Web site for visitors to utilize in planning their vacation or getaway to the U.P.  

This section has been designed to allow visitors to build their own custom itinerary including attractions, recreation and places to stay in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Visitors may:
  • Request additional information from the businesses on their list
  • Print their list
  • View a map of the businesses added to their list
  • Save their list for later by registering with the site and storing their Trip Planner.

The overall goal of the Plan Your Trip is to enable visitors to select their areas of interest of the variety of activities the region has to offer and plan their stay accordingly to ensure they have given themselves enough time in Upper Peninsula to enjoy their vacation or destination getaway.

Gaslight Media also incorporated our GLM Associate Package as the development platform of the UPTRA Web site.
