Visit Michigan - Water (Winter) Wonderland

Michigan is one of those very special kind of US states. The reason for this is obvious. Not only is it state that is located within the Great Lakes region of the Midwestern United States. It is also a state that has the 9th largest population of all the 50 US states. It is also number 11 when it comes to having the largest amount of total area when it comes to US states, in addition. Another clear advantage that it does have over other US states is obvious and this is its coastline. Michigan's freshwater coastline is the longest freshwater coastline that belongs to a political subdivision in the world. It is completely surrounded on all sides by four of the five Great Lakes and also Lake St. Clair. Michigan is also one of the leading states in America when it comes to recreational boating. There are so many water resources in Michigan that no single person is ever no more than six miles from a source of natural water or roughly eighty-five miles from the shorelines of any the Great Lakes.
Michigan is the only US state that contains two peninsulas in number and these two peninsulas are each famous in their own ways. The Lower Peninsula, which the name of Michigan was originally given to, is said to be shaped in the form of a mitten. The Upper Peninsula is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac. The Straits of Mackinac is a five-mile channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. It is the Mackinac Bridge that is able to connect both peninsulas to each other directly. The Upper Peninsula is not as populated as the Lower Peninsula is. However, the Upper Peninsula is the one, which is a travel destination that helps the economy and does offer a wide array of natural resources.
Michigan is called Water (Winter) Wonderland for a reason, and this is because it offers, so many activities in both areas. Michigan also has a tourism website that is always busy. The tourism destinations in this state draw the attention of vacationers, hunters, and those who love nature by the droves. They come from the United States, Canada, and other places to experience both the water and the winter fun. So, with this said, Michigan is a place for tourists to visit all year round if they wish. Nonetheless, the summers are very special for water recreation, and the winter even more so.
Michigan has tons of exciting things to do from a water recreation perspective and they include white water rafting, kayaking, boating, fishing,  scuba diving, snorkeling, water parks, to name a few. A couple of the winter recreational activities here do include X-country skiing, snowmobiling, bobsledding, to name a few examples.
Some of the key tourist attractions in Michigan do include the 2 Lads Winery in Traverse, the 1839 Courthouse Museum in Barrien, A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum in Houghton, are some of the various offerings.
