Michigan Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Michigan!
The state of Michigan features the outdoors like few other states can and includes lake activities, ski resorts, hunting opportunities and more. The Upper Peninsula juts into Lake Superior, setting the stage for a wealth of fishing and boating activities. South from Lake Superior, Michigan bottlenecks into the Straits of Mackinac, located between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Mackinac Island is a popular destination in this area. Grand Traverse Bay and West Coast Michigan offer a choice of aquatic activities along the edge of Lake Michigan. Kalamazoo can be found in Southern Michigan, home to three universities and two colleges. The state capital, Lansing, is found in Central Michigan, an area rife with historical attractions, including the Capitol Building. The waters of Lake Huron lap at the shores of Saginaw Bay and Northeast Michigan, yielding yet more boating and fishing. The Greater Detroit area is famous for producing the bulk of the U.S.A.'s domestic cars.
