Seek Authenticity

Visit the cities of Pure Michigan

There's only one way to experience the true vibe of a city. To get street level with locals sampling plates you've never tasted, feeling grooves you've never heard, and art you never expected. And that is to seek authenticity.
When you uncover Ann ArborDetroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Lansing, you'll find more than just tours and shopping in Michigan's largest cities.
There's vibrant art from Picassos to Shepard Fairey street installations. Including Murals in the Market and one of the largest public art events in the world Art Prize.
Locally-sourced east are also in abundance from james Beard Award-winning romantic dinners and bottomless brunches to communal brewpubs and kitschy cafes.
When it comes to music, Michigan is the birthplace of Techno. Add in Motown and countless genres from classical to hip hop, you'll understand why the state has more than its fair share of live-music venues.

So, if you seek authenticity, you'll find it in the cities of Pure Michigan.
