Michigan


The Great Lake state, Michigan is surrounded by four Great Lakes with miles of shoreline, waterfalls, highest sand dunes, pine forests and miles of beaches. Michigan has two peninsulas each surrounded by Great Lakes shoreline connected by the five mile Mackinaw bridge. Vacationing in Michigan depends on what you like to do: Camping, boating and swimming in the summer months around early June to early September; Fall colors are beautiful during the months of September and October; Winter with its many ski slopes and snow mobile trails last from December until early March.

Wolves and moose still roam free on the Isle Royale National Park, one of hundreds of Michigan islands. Probably the most known island is Mackinac Island in the Straits of Mackinac. The famous Grand Hotel is located here. Michiganian's and tourist enjoy walking the streets, or taking a horse carriage ride, enjoying its Victorian setting. The Upper Peninsula still has many wildlife and waterfowl refuges, copper and iron mines, lots for beautiful waterfalls and the famous Soo Locks that opens up Lake Superior to Lake Huron for ocean freighters delivering there goods.


Michigan's motto is "Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice"
If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you"
