Michigan is a land of sparkling blue waters, untamed wilderness and warm hospitality. More than 3,200 miles of Great Lakes shoreline define Michigan's boundaries and its changing seasons support a variety of activities. Michigan is revered for its vibrant fall colour and bountiful harvest. The multi-hued reds of sugar maples, the sun-inspired yellow of birch and poplar and the deep royal purples of oak splash against the indigo blue of the Great Lakes. Hundreds of roadside farmers' markets and pick your own orchards and more than 60 wineries dot the landscape in Michigan, providing easy access to the season’s freshest produce and fruit from the vine.
Lakes, campgrounds, wildlife refuges and nearly 100 state parks and recreation areas are scattered throughout both peninsulas of the state. There are thousands of miles of hiking, biking and riding trails through millions of forested acres. Michigan also has more public golf courses than any other state in the nation, with more than 800 public golf courses and is known as America’s summer golf capital. Some of the world’s best courses await. The Upper Peninsula is considered the best place in the US for snowmobiling with thousands of miles of groomed trails, and rentals widely available. There are well over 100 state parks and recreation areas across the state.
