10 Best Places to Visit in Michigan

Michigan, the Great Lake State, is a hidden gem waiting to be explored. From its stunning lakeshores to vibrant cities, there’s something for everyone. Here are the top 10 places you must visit when in Michigan.

 

Mackinac Island

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Marvel at the majestic dunes and crystal-clear waters. Enjoy hiking, camping, or simply relaxing on the beach. These legendary sand dunes also features a famous scenic drive down M22 that you cannot miss.

 

The Henry Ford Museum

A must-visit for history buffs, this museum in Dearborn offers an insight into American innovation and history. Witness the first Model T in person and learn about the historical family and where it has led to today.

 

Detroit Institute of Arts

Home to one of the best art collections in the country, this museum will leave art enthusiasts spellbound. Rated one of the best art institutes in the country, The DIA connects people to art with programs, resources, and a diverse collection, among the top six in the nation with over 65,000 works.

 

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Experience nature’s artwork with colorful sandstone cliffs, waterfalls, and pristine beaches. Unique to our area and by far our largest summer attraction is the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The name “Pictured Rocks” comes from the streaks of mineral stain that can be seen on the face of the weathered-sculpted cliffs. An array of colors occur when groundwater seeps through the cracks and trickles down the rock face. Iron (red and orange), copper (blue and green), manganese (brown and black), limonite (white) are among the most common color-producing minerals.

 

Traverse City

Known for its wineries and cherry festival, Traverse City is a foodie’s paradise. In between nature and water, you’ll find a community connected by both where there’s always something happening. If you’re not near the water, or on the trails, you’re likely exploring the county roads in search of scenic overlooks and local treats.

 

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

Proudly ranked among the top 45 most-visited art museums worldwide, our collection showcases over 200 captivating sculptures, inviting you to experience the perfect blend of art and nature.
