Iron River is a rundown impoverished Rust Belt village. Surrounding countryside is beautiful but the town itself has absolutely nothing to offer but sadness and depression.

We found most of the businesses on what seemed to be the main street in town, closed, on a Sat night. We went to a sketchy loud bar for a burger and cocktail. Patrons stated theyd been drinking since 10;30am. This was about 7pm. Food was good tho.

We didn't spend a whole lot of time in Iron River. What we did see we liked. Maybe next time we come. We did go to Crystal Falls where my daughter and her Fiance' bought a house. We did go down the Painted River Kayaking which was so much fun.

We ate at Riverside Pizzeria the first night and the pizza was awesome. The second night we ate at the Outer Limits Bar and Grill. Their fish was truly out-of-this-world! I can't stop thinking about the Cod tenderloin with the best breading!
