  • Welcome to Pure Michigan, where it's time to go barefoot and set off on a summer adventure.

    Beginning mid-March and stretching through the end of September, Michigan magically transforms itself into a lush playground that gives us a chance to escape to sun-drenched landscapes that relax and rejuvenate us.

    To help plan your adventure, check the Hot Spot listings, use the Trip Planner which allows you to easily build your personal itinerary or check out festivals, exhibits and performances on the statewide events calendar. Be sure to stop by the Pure Michigan blog to read first-hand experiences of other travelers and Michigan enthusiasts. If you love taking summer photos, consider sharing them on Twitter or Instagram or on Pure Michigan's Facebook page with over 800,000 likes.

    Summer offers adventurers that only happen once a year. Dig your toes in the warm sand. Float on fresh waters. Pitch a tent under a canopy of stars. Golf the bent grass fairways of championship courses. Dine el fresco along bustling sidewalks.

    So pack the car, break out your sunglasses, and begin your Pure Michigan summer adventure.
