There is also Paradise Township in Grand Traverse County.
Paradise is an unincorporated community in Whitefish Township, Chippewa County in the U.S. state of Michigan.
Paradise is on the northeastern portion of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, on the western side of Whitefish Bay, Lake Superior, about 60 miles by road from Sault Ste. Marie and about 55 miles north of the Mackinac Bridge.
Founded in 1925, Paradise is surrounded by state and national forests and its main business is tourism. It is considered one of two gateways to the Tahquamenon Falls area. The area draws hunters, fishers, campers, backpackers, snowmobilers and birdwatchers. Lake Superior shipping lanes are several miles offshore. Whitefish Point with the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, beach, Whitefish Point Lighthouse and prime birding area, is 11 miles north. Whitefish Point is the spot where ships enter the open lake from Whitefish Bay. This is the nearest navigation mark to the wreckage of the ore freighter SS Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank in 1975.
