New Glass Blocks in Pier at Marquette’s Lower Harbor Gives Amazing View Into Lake Superior
The Ore Dock at the Lower Harbor in Marquette is one of the most striking spots in Michigan's Upper Peninsula to visit.
Located along Lakeshore Drive, the Ore Docks at the Lower Harbor are now a focal point of a multi-use trail system and park.
As part of the continued redevelopment of the area, a new pier with glass blocks has been installed.
Check out this image of the glass blocks with the waters of Lake Superior rolling underneath.
The new feature met with raves when shared on the Yoopers Facebook group:
I'd love to see it on a day the lake is crabby!
Actually, it would be really cool (and cheap!) if they had some LEDs down in the water. I'll bring that up whenever I get to talk to those in charge.

Consider the glass blocks in the pier to be Marquette's version of the Skydeck at the Sears, er Willis, Tower in Chicago and the Skywalk at the Grand Canyon.
