Top 10 Things Every Michigander Must Do, #5 Sounds Really Cool!

Nearly 8000 votes were cast in a poll conducted by MLive.Com titled The Michigan Bucket List: 25 Things Every Michigander Must Do. With this poll, readers voted their biggest Michigan must-do experiences and the top 10 results are as follows.

1. Soak up the scenery at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

This stunning park on the shores of Lake Superior took first place and won more than 10 percent of the votes in our bucket list poll. No wonder: there’s really no other place like it on Earth.

2. Explore the wilderness at Isle Royale National Park

Visiting Isle Royale – reportedly America’s least-visited national park – requires some prep but the beauty and solitude are worth it.

3. See the fall color in the Porcupine Mountains

Camp, hike, stay overnight in a yurt – whatever you do, bring a camera for the jaw dropping scenery at spots like Lake of the Clouds overlook and the Presque Isle river corridor.

4. Behold the beauty of Tahquamenon Falls

This seris of impressive waterfalls owe its unique rusty colors to tannins from the cedar swamps where the Tahquamenon river originates.

5. See the ice caves on Lake Superior

Those who brave the epic cold of Lake Superior in the winter are treated to the magic of ice caves. Grand Island in Munising, near Pictured Rocks, is a great spot for frozen spectacle.

6. Do the Dune Climb at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Run-tumbling down the big dune at Sleeping Bear Dunes is about a classic “up-north” experience.

7. See a Lake Michigan sunset

Your Pure Michigan experience won’t be complete without seeing a Lake Michigan sunset.

8. Walk across the Straits at the annual Mackinac Bridge Walk

This free anual Labor Day weekend event drew an estimated 30,000 people last year.

9. Canoe, kayak or tube a Michigan river

Whether you prefer a lazy tube ride up the Platte or paddling the whitewater rapids of the Au Train, spending some QT with Michigan’s more than 300 named rivers is a must-do.

10. Ride a ferry

In a state nearly surrounded by water, ferry rides are part of life here – a necessity to some, a novelty to others, but a part of Great Lakes experience.
