Tom Daldin, host of the Emmy award winning PBS series “Under the Radar” introduces first-time visitors to Michigan. Urban adventurer, outdoor enthusiasts and foodies alike will be greeted by Michigan’s cool cities, unspoiled natural resources and exploding farm-to-fork movement. Take your vacation to the next level that is Pure Michigan.
As the warm sun rises above the horizon it calls us outside to a new day. Outside to fresh breezes. Outside to enchanting waters. Outside to Pure Michigan.
Renew your spirit playing along the world’s longest freshwater coastline. Fish the sparkling waters of Michigan’s 11,000 inland lakes. Lookout across the horizon from one of 129 Great Lakes lighthouses. Crisscross the state on more than 1,300 miles of bike trails while enjoying the view of Michigan’s lush vineyards and wineries. Golf some of the highest ranked courses in the country. Unwind with a Hopslam, Dragon's Milk or other colorfully named craft beer at a local brewery. Gather for events and festivals celebrating Michigan’s heritage and community spirit.
From coast to coast, Michigan's unique experiences are as varied as its Great Lakes: the millions of tulips blooming in Holland to the sweet scent of lilacs in the air on Mackinac Island; the breezes of the Great Lakes Bay Region; the food and film of Traverse City; the hot art and cool craft beer of Grand Rapids; and "doing life different" in Ann Arbor.
Whether you’re looking for an adventure, a memory-filled family vacation, or a romantic getaway, it's time to visit the summer playgrounds of Pure Michigan.
