Great Lakes
Michigan has two National Lakeshores, over 100 public beaches, and 3,200 miles of coastline. If you're looking for water activities, you'll find no shortage of opportunities for boating, kayaking, fishing, and scuba diving. Beneath the waters, you can uncover almost 5,000 shipwrecks. Over a hundred lighthouses dot the shores amid a landscape that ranges from rolling dunes to craggy sandstone cliffs. Though there are dozens of lakefront locations in Michigan, Coastal Living highlights Empire, Traverse City, and Suttons Bay as the best. For the ultimate in Michigan lakefront escapes, look for a vacation rental right on the water.
Wineries and Microbreweries
You may not associate wine with Michigan, but the state has over 100 wineries. Microbreweries abound in the area as well, with many tasting tours incorporating both wines and craft beers for a full-flavored exploration of the area. Take the Bay View Wine Trail and enjoy hard cider and meat pasties at Royal Farms or sample maple syrup wines at the Maple Moon Sugarbush and Winery. The Leelanau Peninsula has an abundance of options with 24 wineries and 3 distinctive mini-trails.
The Southeast Michigan Pioneer Wine Trail combines fine wines with a storied past. You'll find eight wineries scattered amid antique shops and historic sites, like Jackson's train station and Civil War sites or the Hayden-Ford Mill in Tecumseh.
Unusual Attractions
If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, you'll find Michigan offers many hidden gems. Explore aviation in an immersive way at the Air Zoo in Portage, with 50 types of aircraft on display and interactive exhibits to explore. Hop on board a wagon and ride through 130 acres of pasture amid 200 elk at the Amber Elk Ranch in Ludington. The museum experience takes a fascinating twist at the Antique Toy and Firehouse Museum in Bay City and American Museum of Magic in Marshall.
The Upper Peninsula
Michigan's Upper Peninsula is a world all its own, where everything seems just a bit removed from the faster pace of modern life. Follow the historic paths of fur traders, creep through ghost towns, delve into copper mines, or view sunken ships through a glass-bottomed boat. The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offers 15 miles of sandstone cliffs and 12 miles of sandy beaches. If you think you hear the sound of rushing water as you're exploring the U.P., you're probably right. There are over 300 waterfalls in the region for hikers intrepid enough to seek them out.
Michigan vacation rentals give you a home away from home as you take in the quiet wonders and engaging attractions of this state. Target your favorite region and start planning your visit now.
