Michigan Avenue Bridge

A home of the must-visit tourist attractions and the city of Detroit, Michigan is a beautiful Midwestern American state where there are countless places to see. Let’s see some of Michigan’s most splendid places.

Mackinac Island
Fan of a West World TV series? Well, this is a place that resembles with it, because it is designed with a view of the historic period.  Take a look at a simpler way of life before buses and cars used to roam the cities, and the fun thing is, you have to take a ferry to reach the island. A day wandering around Mackinac Village shops, Fort Mackinac and old town in horse-drawn carriages is a day well spent.

Isle Royale National Park
Located near the Canadian frontier, in the northwest of Lake Superior is Isle Royale National Park which is a home of deep forest that includes rare wildlife from wolves, foxes, moose, otters, ospreys to a pure remote never-seen-before wilderness experience. This place is ideal for hiking and boat trips from Houghton and Cooper Harbor to Minnesota and Grand Portage.

Picture Rocks National Seashore
What can make your trip more soothing than watching shores of Lake Superior where natural art is abundant. By natural art, it, in fact, means bright copper, iron and manganese oxide rocks with the background of beautiful landscapes offering a mix of dunes, cliffs, beaches and rocky shoreline. If you have read Sidney Sheldon’s novel ‘Master Of the Game’ you will know how it feel to sail in a human-made raft and how can it be crashed. Anyway, this place is famous for hiking, camping and boating amid of the lush green forest and beautiful inland lakes and rivers.
