With all the deadlines and obligations that fill our days, we need to make time to enjoy the simplest of pleasures. Like a sugar-sand beach. Forests that explode with the most vibrant of colors. Small towns that welcome us more warmly than a summer day. And cities that stir our imaginations. Welcome to the way life should be. And a feeling that’s Pure Michigan.
Step back in time to an island that transports mind, body and soul to a world of simpler pleasures. A leisurely carriage ride down quiet, uncluttered streets. An aimless stroll along miles of unpaved trails. Dancing face-to-face with your loved one on the floors of the romantic Grand Hotel. Come to our Mackinac Island, one of the world's top island destinations. Where every day is timeless, every night precious.
Experience the creative energy that is Grand Rapids: dazzling art and culture, exceptional dining and nightlife, and inspiring natural beauty. The walkable downtown is filled with restaurants, breweries, clubs, theaters and museums – and every autumn, it hosts ArtPrize, the world’s richest art competition. This cosmopolitan cool is matched by an equally impressive outdoor menu– Grand Rapids offers great golfing, fishing, hiking, biking and even downhill skiing. All just minutes from the sugar-sand beaches of Lake Michigan.
The Henry Ford
Whether they were conquering the skies or illuminating the world, come to a place where superheroes live – The Henry Ford, America's Greatest History Attraction. Ride in an old Model T or see the most modern cars of today being built. Explore the bicycle shop where the Wright Brothers first gave us the power to fly. There's only one place you can step into stories like these. The Only Place. The Henry Ford.
In a world that tries so hard to look and feel like everything else, there is a place that knows exactly what it is – Ann Arbor. A town that embraces the unique and unusual. Where art, in all its forms, challenges the mind as much as it engages the eyes. And where trying a new taste is always on the menu. All amidst the backdrop of a cosmopolitan city and one of America's most prestigious universities.
Nestled at the head of Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City is a four-season destination that combines breathtaking natural attractions with a rich blend of adventure and relaxation. Known for its 180 miles of sugar-sand Lake Michigan shoreline, Traverse City is also home to award-winning wineries, championship golf courses, and a vibrant downtown with more than 150 shops and restaurants. You owe it to yourself to discover all that Traverse City has to offer.
An array of attractions and a vibrant downtown add up to days and nights filled with fun and excitement in Detroit. Enjoy morning strolls along the Detroit River or take in the vibrant colors and fresh aromas of a bustling open-air market. Spend an afternoon at a ball game or lose yourself in a world-class museum. And whether it's a sizzling night of dancing or a cool, mellow night of jazz, you'll run out of day before you run out of Detroit.
