It's not often that you head out on a vacation planning to hit up the local farms, but in Michigan you might just want to. Michigan is one of the top apple-producing states in the U.S., and is known for being home to hundreds of farmers markets and cider mills. Just about any region in Michigan will have a farm or mill for you and the family to stop in for a bit. Enjoy fresh apple cider and tours of working farms to find out where these fruits come from before they hit your local grocery store. Of course, because there is much more to do than visit apple farms, your Michigan family vacation will be jam-packed with fun for everyone.

Michigan Coast Dotted with Over a Hundred Lighthouses

Michigan is the only state in the United States to be bordered by four great lakes. Because of this, its coast is dotted with over a hundred lighthouses, all with unique features and some with very interesting back stories. Though many of the lighthouses are still in use, others have been abandoned and others still are in the process of renovation. Though you may not be able to tour all of them, the few that do offer tours or that have museums are usually worth stopping to see. Even if you just stop for a few photos, lighthouses make fantastic pictures, especially when you can tell admirers that you took them yourself.

Pop into One of Michigan's Casinos

If your particular Michigan family vacation does not include children, or if you find yourself child-free with a few hours to spare, you might decide to pop into one of Michigan's casinos and try your hand at some cards, slots or a roll or two of the dice. Detroit has three casinos in the city itself, and there are several other throughout the state. If you're not much of a gambler, you can still enjoy the food and entertainment, much like Las Vegas but on a much smaller scale. Now that you have an idea of what Michigan has to offer, start planning your vacation accordingly, and don't forget to take lots of pictures!

A common misconception about Detroit is that the entire city is destitute and headed for complete disaster; when in fact the truth is that the city is making great strides to regain its high acclaim. With the restructuring of the big three, the heart of the American automotive industry; the constructing of the new light rail transportation; and the relocation of major corporations back to the city, these changes are all necessary elements for the equation of success and a booming and thriving economy for Detroit.

Though the housing market is lagging in recent advancements it will soon follow trend. Many investors understand the economic cycle and see Detroit as prime opportunity to begin using real estate as long term investment vehicles that offer steady high returns. Investors will earn steady rates of gain as long as they invest in the market while prices are at historical lows. Here are some common myths about Detroit that are actually quite unbelievable.

Detroit is all bad...
This is one of the funniest we've heard. Nothing is ever all bad. People, opportunities and situations are only bad when proper research and adequate time to investigate have not been given. It wouldn't be difficult to believe it with the way media portrays the city. Most things that make it to national headlines about the city are negative. It is true, Detroit has been hit hard during the economic crisis and one of the keys to reviving the city is rebuilding its infrastructure. Thus, the construction of major attractions like the Detroit International Riverwalk, a 102 million dollar development; Campus Martius Park; and the light rail transportation system. If the city was so terrible, organizations would not be investing hundreds of millions of dollars into an economy and city they felt wouldn't recover. They are making an investment into a city they believe will bounce back and once again be the home of major industries.

Don't believe the hype. With any large city there are good aspects and some not so good aspects. Investigate the matter further and do your due diligence to discover all the positive opportunities Detroit has to offer. Detroit currently presents a prime opportunity to build wealth through real estate investing.
