Best Destination Spots in Michigan
Many states advertise the benefit of visiting their state. Michigan has taken to advertising their own unique destination spots with their slogan “Pure Michigan.” For people who like water- based entertainment, Michigan or some of the other Great Lake states make for a great vacation destination. However, there have been ongoing struggles with dangerous algae in Lake Erie.
If have considered vacationing in Michigan, the Pure Michigan website is a great place to start. The state’s hot spots include: Ann Arbor (home of the University of Michigan), Grand Rapids, Mackinac Island, The Henry Ford Museum, and Traverse City.
One of the little known wonders about Michigan is Frankenmuth. Frankenmuth is known by many in the state as the home of Bronner’s. It is the largest Christmas store in the country and is open nearly all year with the exception of a few holidays. The Christmas store brings in people from across the country. The store features many unique ornaments and handmade glass ornaments from Italy, Germany, and Egypt.
Mackinac Island is another of the state’s great get-a-ways. There are no vehicles allowed on the island with the exception of emergency vehicles. The island is known for their fudge shops and historic Inns. Right off the island, you can watch battle reenactments at Fort Mackinac.
If you love museums, you will love the Henry Ford Museum. The museum was started by Henry Ford and boasts a collection of over 26 million artifacts. It was voted; “One of the Top 10 places to be inspired by innovation” by USA Today. And be sure to visit Greenfield Village where you step back in time and see preserved historic homes and buildings from around the country. Employees complete the experience by dressing in era clothing and plow fields, spin cotton, and can vegetables all in a historically accurate manner.
