  1. I have never toured a winery but I’ve always wanted to. Michigan is on my bucket list and when I finally make it for a visit, I’m going to start with the wineries and see everything else I have time for.

  2. I am so happy I found this list 🙂 We’ve only lived here a few months, and while we are out experiencing new things, none of these spots/things had really hit my radar yet. I hear amazing things about the UP and really, really want to make it up there soon. I did finally get to see the coast of Lake Michigan, though it was rainy, it was still beautiful.

  3. These are all beautiful! My favorite would be Pinnacle Falls. It would be nice to spend a day there. The place is peaceful and serene, the perfect place to relieve stress.

  4. The sunrise photo is stunning! I love watching sunrises and sunsets. They are just awe-inspiring. My cousin was born and raised in Michigan, but moved to Florida when he started a family. I would’ve stayed in Michigan if I were him. Its such a beautiful place to raise a family.

  5. I have never been to Michigan but I would love to experience that syrup festival! That looks like so much fun.

  6. The Great Lakes have always been something that I have wanted to see. It looks like it would be absolutely beautiful.
