I have to say, having been born in this great state and living most of my life here, I wouldn't have wanted to be born anywhere else. I have done my fair share of traveling and even lived in Mississippi for five years. Nothing compares to the options that we have throughout the Mitten. We season all four seasons in their prime (whether that is good or bad depends on you.) Michigan also offers indoor and outdoor activities 365 days each year despite the season. It truly has something for everyone.
