Michigan can make a great vacation destination if you are into getting away from it all. It incorporates miles and miles of beaches, sand dunes, lush green forests, and of course... the Great Lakes. There are four regions of Michigan which are the Upper Peninsula, Northern Michigan, Mid-Michigan, and Downstate.

Michigan in the summer can be pretty exciting with activities such as canoeing down protected rivers through lush forests, motorboating or sailing on its many lakes, or fly fishing on a scenic stream. All in all there are around 12,000 lakes in the state including Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and a small amount of Lake Erie.

If you are looking for a 'city vacation' in Michigan there is Detroit, the largest city, and Lansing, the state capital. In these bigger cities you'll find more city-like things to do with their many historic landmarks, fine dining, and cultural experiences.
