The Wolverine State of Michigan is located in the Great Lakes region of the Midwestern United States. The capital city is Lansing, and the largest city is Detroit, followed in population by Grand Rapids, Warren and Sterling heights. Michigan has the distinction of being bounded by four of the five Great Lakes (Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior) and Lake Saint Clair, and of being the only state made up of two peninsulas. The Upper Peninsula, usually referred to as “the U.P.”, is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, the five-mile channel joining Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The Mackinac Bridge connects the two peninsulas. The U.P. is heavily forested and relatively mountainous in the west, whereas the Lower Peninsula is relatively level with gentle hills. The state has nearly 65,000 inland lakes and ponds, which means that if you’re in Michigan, you’re never more than six miles from a natural water source. Michigan is an outdoor recreation paradise with ideal boating, sailing, fishing, beach-going, biking, hiking, hunting, and, in the winter, skiing and snowmobiling. Michigan has the largest state park and state forest system in the U.S., with 78 state parks, 6 state forests and 19 recreation areas, including: Holland State Park, Mackinac Island State Park, Au Sable State Forest, and Mackinaw State Forest.

Other popular tourist destinations in Michigan include Traverse City on the Grand Traverse Bay in Northern Michigan and Metro Detroit, the largest metropolitan area in the state, which receives more than 15 million visitors each year. Detroit is home to Michigan’s professional sports teams, and is the center of its automotive industry. Michigan is known as the birthplace of the automotive industry and is the leading auto-producing state in the U.S. Michigan also has a significant agriculture industry, and is a leading grower of fruit such as blueberries, cherries, apples, grapes and peaches. The state’s public universities add to the economy by attracting more than $1.5 B in research and development grants each year.
