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.

Detroit Real Estate Investment Myths - Don't Believe the Hype

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.
