Hi! My name is Barb and I’m a travel agent here in the lovely state of Michigan. My friends often ask what makes Michigan so special, so I decided to write my own thoughts about some of the most interesting places in the Wolverine state!
Michigan is a beautiful state with two very distinct areas according to the residents there. There is the upper peninsula and the lower peninsula. A friend of mine that used to live in Michigan would tell me about visiting his grandfather who lived in the upper peninsula. I always wanted to visit the state, but I haven’t had the chance just yet to see the most interesting places for tourism in Michigan.
You can imagine that there are some great attractions. On one travel site, the top three places to visit in the state are The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit and the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids. My friend lived closer to Flint, and his grandfather lived in Paradise. One of the attractions in Paradise is listed as one of the best in the state at #11. It is Tahquamenon Falls State Park. The picture of the falls is gorgeous.
There is also the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners and so much more. One of these days, I might just finally make it to Michigan. I would definitely want to visit Clio, Flint, Detroit and Paradise. Many of the state’s top attractions you can imagine are in Detroit.
It does get pretty cold up there in Michigan, but it is still a great place to visit year round. It’s beautiful in Michigan during the fall, especially in certain rural areas. If you’re not a wintertime person, then choose the summer and get your plans together to visit these great attractions in Michigan.
When you’re looking for the most beautiful places in Michigan, one attraction you want to experience is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. This attraction is found in Empire, and the picture I noticed featured the sun setting over the lake. Then you have Mackinac Island State Park, which is also beautiful and located on Mackinac Island of course.
While you’re on the island, you also want to take a ride on Shepler’s Ferry. There is also Comerica Park in Detroit where the Tigers play, Sugarloaf Mountain in Marquette, Miners Castle Rock in Munising and the Motown Museum, again in Detroit. You will notice that there are quite a few state parks throughout Michigan, and they are all worth visit, quite beautiful. Dow Gardens in Midland also looks very beautiful. Whatever kinds of attractions you’re looking for, Michigan has them available for you and your family to enjoy.
