Sometimes called the “Great Lakes State,” Michigan is a part of the Midwest that has a little bit of everything. Detroit, Michigan’s largest city, is one of America’s most vibrant cultural hubs, boasting Motown music’s origins and a rich heritage of car history, among other markers. People from across the state and beyond venture out to Michigan vacation rentals for the chance to enjoy one of the four Great Lakes that touch the state, or perhaps one of its thousands of smaller inland lakes. Reserve your spot at a Michigan cabin or house, and you’ll have a front-row seat to all this lovely state has to offer.
With the most southeastern corner touched by Lake Erie and the sparsely-populated Upper Peninsula bordered by Lake Superior, this state is surrounded by Great Lakes from end to end. Lake Michigan sits directly west of its namesake and is home to fantastic lakeside destinations like Harbor Springs. Folks venture out to the shores of Lake Michigan for summer vacation, and there they enjoy the scenery of forested shores between long afternoons out boating on the lake. The other side of the state finds itself adjacent to Lake Huron, where there are plenty of lighthouses to be spotted and fish to be caught.
If you’re traveling to Michigan, you’ll want to book a comfortable vacation rental. Once you’re feeling settled, you’ll be ready to explore all this amazing state has to offer.
