With sparking beaches, lakes that feel like oceans, and bustling cities that offer a wealth of arts and entertainment options, Michigan offers a nearly infinite array of moments to remember for a lifetime. Pure Michigan is more than a slogan; it’s a way of life.
Millions of people make Michigan their vacation destination – locating in Michigan can put abundant recreational activities within easy driving distance for you and your workforce. Our state is a boaters’ and beachgoers’ paradise: We have two peninsulas surrounded by 3,251 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, more than any other state but Alaska, and dotted with 116 picturesque lighthouses. Michigan is also home to award-winning cities, including Ann Arbor, ranked Forbes’ Magazine’s 4th Most Livable City in 2010, and five Michigan cities – Grosse Ile, Plymouth Township, Rochester, Saline and Tecumseh -- included in CNN/Money’s Top 100 best places to live in 2009.
