9 Lovely Must-See Places in Michigan to Add to Your List ...

In my opinion, there are a lot of must-see places in Michigan. In fact, I secretly think it’s one of the most underrated states in the country. It’s not necessarily a major tourist destination, but it should be. Have you ever seen the Pure Michigan commercials? They’re wonderful. I could ramble on and on about Michigan, but I won’t. Having lived here my entire life, I feel qualified to tell you about some of the must-see places in Michigan, and hopefully one day you’ll come and see them for yourself!

1. "up North"

If you’re from Michigan, you know exactly what I mean, and why this general area is one of the must-see places in Michigan. "Up North" is where everyone in Michigan goes on vacation, whether it’s Lake Michigan, Torch Lake, or Higgins Lake. We have a lot of lakes. I thought this was a common phrase to say until a few years ago. Alas, it’s just a Michigan thing. For the non-Michiganders out there, "Up North" basically means anywhere in Northern Michigan. If you come to Michigan, you need to go up north during your time here. What’s my personal favorite place up north? Higgins Lake. It’s beautiful.
