About Michigan


Michigan is in the upper Midwest and the heart of the Great Lakes region. It has many attractions, famous landmarks, and scenic state and national parks and forests. In addition to the “great ones”, it has about 12,000 inland lakes, 38 deep-water ports, more miles of coastline than any state but Alaska, and more lighthouses than any other U.S. state. Its agriculture features tourist-friendly fare such as cherries, blueberries, peaches, apples, and wine. And its cities include a major metropolis, some university towns, and countless rustic villages. The state is geographically unique, being comprised of two major peninsulas, and it can be further divided into five distinct areas. They are the Upper Peninsula, (known to Michiganders as "The U.P."), Northern Michigan (Big Rapids and Northwards), Western Michigan (along the sandy coast of Lake Michigan), Central Michigan or "Mid-Michigan" and the Southeast or "Downstate".

The Lower Peninsula has the majority of the population (primarily in the south), while the Upper Peninsula, separated by Lake Michigan and a bit of Lake Huron, is mostly rural. Until 1957, the only way to drive from one to the other was to go all the way around Lake Michigan, or take your car onto a ferry. Michigan's economy was previously dominated by the auto industry, but has diversified somewhat as that and other traditional manufacturing industries have moved their facilities elsewhere, and it's beginning to attract more information technology, life sciences, and high-tech manufacturing jobs. Tourism is a growing segment of the economy, focusing in winter on activities in the snow, and in summer on the State's extensive beaches, lakes, and rivers. Hunting, fishing, and sailing are also popular outdoor activities

Fishing has been a valuable industry on the Peninsula since the 1850's when French fishermen founded quaint fishing villages that remain today. Besides Fishing, Hiking, Boating, and Swimming here are great, the area is also known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks! This is a Bird Watchers Paradise! Because many smaller birds won't cross bodies of water if they cannot see land on the other side, the chain of islands extending from Michigan's Garden Peninsula to Wisconsin's Door Peninsula, allows birds to work their way south down the Peninsula, then "island hop" to Wisconsin - making it great for viewing the birds migrating up the peninsula in the spring, and down in the fall! In the late 1860s a smelting plant site, named Fayette, was built on the Peninsula. After the plant closed the State of Michigan purchased and restored the "ghost" town, naming it the Fayette State Park. It attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year resulting in a growing tourism industry. Farming, commercial fishing, logging, and tourism are all part of the areas current economic backbone.
