Michigan is a beautiful land bordering four of the Great Lakes and split into two distinct pieces: the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. It is a dream for water sports, bird watching, and pretty much any other outdoor activity given the many parks and natural beauty of the state.
Michigan is chock full of public parks and natural beauty. Many beaches along the Great Lakes have been preserved for public enjoyment. While a state park today, Mackinac Island was the second site to be designated as a National Park, three years after Yellowstone.
Michigan is a state meant for outdoor exploration. Hike along rivers, lakes, and forested bluffs.
Camping options abound in Michigan. With shoreline along four Great Lakes, it is the ultimate summer escape. That being said, it is valuable to know the weather ahead of time and have gear to anticipate sporadic rain storms.
