Michigan Summer Attractions

We are often asked what are the best summertime attractions in Michigan. Wow, what a loaded question. Are you interested in the natural beauty of Michigan's coast including sand dunes and overlooks? Are you interested in the vast nature areas between the big lakes where you will see small lake communities and amazing historical architecture. Are you interested in Family Fun attractions that might include boats and lakes, farms and agriculture? There is just too much to see and do when visiting Michigan. Personally I would say map out an area of the state and see everything you can in that general area. Next year move to a different area. In about 15 or 16 summers you can decide what the best attractions are in Michigan.. Enjoy Life, Michigan Life!
