Visit Michigan - Water (Winter) Wonderland
Michigan is one of those very special kind of US states. The reason for this is obvious. Not only is it state that is located within the Great Lakes region of the Midwestern United States. It is also a state that has the 9th largest population of all the 50 US states. It is also number 11 when it comes to having the largest amount of total area when it comes to US states, in addition. Another clear advantage that it does have over other US states is obvious and this is its coastline. Michigan's freshwater coastline is the longest freshwater coastline that belongs to a political subdivision in the world. It is completely surrounded on all sides by four of the five Great Lakes and also Lake St. Clair. Michigan is also one of the leading states in America when it comes to recreational boating. There are so many water resources in Michigan that no single person is ever no more than six miles from a source of natural water or roughly eighty-five miles from the shorelines of any the Great Lakes.
Michigan is the only US state that contains two peninsulas in number and these two peninsulas are each famous in their own ways. The Lower Peninsula, which the name of Michigan was originally given to, is said to be shaped in the form of a mitten. The Upper Peninsula is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac. The Straits of Mackinac is a five-mile channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. It is the Mackinac Bridge that is able to connect both peninsulas to each other directly. The Upper Peninsula is not as populated as the Lower Peninsula is. However, the Upper Peninsula is the one, which is a travel destination that helps the economy and does offer a wide array of natural resources.
