Derived from an Indian word meaning "great lake," Michigan consists of two peninsulas, which border four of the five Great Lakes: Erie, Huron, Michigan, and Superior. Shaped like a mitten, the Lower Peninsula grasps the majority of the population in its palm. This population derives a great deal of its income from the auto industry.
Since Michigan claims over 10,000 lakes and numerous rivers in addition to the Great Lakes, it attracts many summer residents who enjoy the forests, streams, and natural areas as a break from city life. Because of this, many resort communities have sprung up across the state and visitors take advantage of the natural resources that Michigan has to offer. Skiing, canoeing, car racing, and antiquing attract the tourists to this rolling, green landscape blessed with an abundance of lakes.
Michigan's population has a rich European heritage. Irish immigrants settled the area in southern Michigan known as the Irish Hills because it reminded them so much of home. Also, the Dutch town of Holland and the German town of Frankenmuth preserve homeland traditions with ethnic foods, architectures, handicrafts, and festivals.
Michigan is also famous for its fruit production. Cherries, apples, blueberries, and other fruits thrive on its soil. The Southwest Michigan Tourist Council publishes a driving map that takes you through the many orchards. The blossoms burst into fragrant color in the spring, the roadside stands open in the summer, and the trees display their vibrant palettes in the fall.
The Straits of Mackinac have separated Michigan's two peninsulas which, since 1957, have been joined by the five-mile-long Mackinac Bridge. Crossing the bridge takes you on a journey into desolate wilderness. Many of the early settlers to the area came from abroad to work in the mines. Such specialties as Cornish pasties, a folded pastry shell with a meat and potato filling, came with the immigrants and still remains popular. Yoopers, as they are affectionately known, brave the long winters and heavy snowfalls where seasonal accumulations of the white stuff average 180 inches. Naturally, this area is a paradise for snowshoers, skiers, and snowmobilers.
Natural scenery abounds in this wilderness area. The Tahquamenon Falls, Isle Royale National Park, Pictured Rocks Lakeshore, and Porcupine Mountains count among the many areas that merit a visit. Expect to encounter wildlife like moose, deer, and bears. The shoreline of Lake Superior attracts agate hunters and you may even catch a ghost ship passing by. Remember to allow plenty of time for exploring the Upper Penninsula.
Michigan's Great Lake Circle Tours will introduce you to each of the bodies of water. With over 3,000 miles of shoreline, Michigan has many lighthouses, summer resorts, beaches, and plenty of water-based activities. Each of the lakes has a distinct personality waiting to be discovered. Plan your travels and allowing plenty of time for visiting the numerous roadside attractions. The sheer size of the state demands several visits to experience the diversity found in this wonderland.
