Visit Michigan and you’ll quickly discover: the state’s landscapes are immense, and its charms varied. Four of the five Great Lakes border Michigan, sculpting a 3,300-mile coastline, second among the US states only to Alaska. More than 120 lighthouses—more than any other state—illuminate Michigan’s shoreline. And its diverse travel offerings range from wind-whipped Lake Superior cliff faces to adrenaline-inducing amusement parks and trendy urban whisky distilleries.
It would take a lifetime to see all of Michigan’s attractions. But what if you had only one day? Perfect Day Michigan helps visitors narrow their focus. Within these pages, you’ll discover underground mine tours in Michigan’s Copper Country and luxury ski resorts near Petoskey. You’ll learn about the best Middle Eastern food in Detroit and where to pick your own blueberries in South Haven. You’ll ask yourself whether you’d rather climb an authentic 18th-century Dutch windmill in Holland, ascend a haunted lighthouse in Port Huron, or take the elevator to the top of Grand Rapids’ premier hotel for a romantic five-star steak dinner.
