Pure Michigan is the travel and tourism site for Michigan and has great resources to plan a visit and learn about the area. We loved Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinac Island, and the Upper Peninsula area on Lake Superior. GMA voted Sleeping Bear Dunes the most beautiful place in America in August and we totally agree. It's a long trip from certain parts of the US- but plan a trip just like you would to the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone- it's just beautiful with lots to do and see!
Porcupine Mountains. Wilderness State Park, Michigan.
It's been 175 years since 1837, when Michigan and Ohio signed a truce after a brief skirmish over the hotly contested property of the Toledo Strip. Ohio might have gotten the fair city of Toledo, but in exchange Michigan got the riches of the Upper Peninsula -- a much better deal, we think. With the matter of territory cleared up, President Andrew Jackson signed Michigan into statehood on Jan. 26, 1837, making the mitten the 26th state in the union.
