Reason # 1 The Motor City

Maybe I'm a little bit biased since I come from Detroit, but I think that Detroit is a great reason to visit Michigan. Ignore, for a moment, the decrepit old houses and deteriorating neighborhoods, and think of the city's rich, vibrant culture and historical landmarks. Detroit is home to "The Big 3" and "Motown" after all. I don't care how much negative press you've heard about the city, don't tell me that you haven't driven a Big 3 car or been in love with a Motown song. The city's current decline is certainly no reason not to visit. Just be sure to keep your doors locked.(That was a joke, by the way).

Reason # 5 The Sports Teams

So, the Detroit Lions haven't done so well in the past few years. The Tigers almost made it to the World Series this year. The NBA is in the middle of a lockout, so we won't mention the Detroit Pistons. The Red Wings are probably the most consistent team we have, and although I don't follow hockey, it seems like they're winning the Stanley Cup every other year.

Plus, there are all of the college teams - the Big House (University of Michigan) is one of the most popular sporting venues in the country.
