      What makes a unique U.P. date?

      Your Facebook Story of the Day is about dating in the Upper Peninsula. What fun activities can you do on a date besides the old fashioned dinner and a movie?

      "Enjoying each other's physically active hobbies or extracurricular activities like hiking, skiing, ect. are good to see if you'll enjoy doing those things together," writes Facebook fan Sheila Mann Wedell.

      At the PEIF Center in Marquette, they may have some places in mind for your next date.

      Some of the programs at the Outdoor Recreational Center include hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing.

      Employees say enjoying the outdoors together makes for a memorable date or a chance to meet someone new.

      "Best way to know somebody is when they're in their prime, I'm in my prime when I'm outside," said ORC Rentals Manager Kelly McMahon. "It's how I start to like people, it's how I make friends. Just go out and have a good time; this will give you an opportunity to get to meet people."

      The ORC welcomes newcomers. They say the affordable activities let you enjoy time together for less.
