Michigan is a Midwestern state in the Great Lakes region of the United States. With a name meaning “large lake,” Michigan is the largest state east of the Mississippi River and the only state to consist of two peninsulas. As the state with longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world and bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, any point within its borders is never more than six miles from a natural water source or more than 85 miles from a Great Lakes shoreline, making it one of the leading U.S. states for recreational boating. Some notable people from Michigan include Madonna, Iggy Pop, Serena Williams, and Magic Johnson.
Michigan is a fine state to call home. The heavily forested Upper Peninsula contains the Porcupine Mountains, one of the oldest mountain chains in the world. The Lower Peninsula is shaped like a mitten and many residents hold up a hand to depict where they are from. Michigan experiences a continental climate with warm summers and cold winters; however the Upper Peninsula has shorter summers and colder winters.
Michigan has some exciting cities to move to. The state capital, Lansing, was named one of the "10 Great Cities for Young Adults" by Kiplinger. The Lansing area is headquarters to four major national insurance companies and the offices and hi-tech manufacturing facility of General Motors. Each year in August, the Michigan Pride festival includes a LGBT pride parade from Riverfront Park to the capitol.
Detroit is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Michigan and a major port on the Detroit River, a strait that connects the Great Lakes system to the Saint Lawrence Seaway. The Detroit metropolitan area is home to the country's three major automobile companies, contributing to the city's two familiar nicknames, the Motor City and Motown. The Motown style of music that originated here Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music in the 1960’s. Downtown Detroit has held an increased role as an entertainment destination in the 21st century, with the restoration of several historic theatres, several new sports stadiums, and a riverfront revitalization project.
The second largest city in the state, Grand Rapids, was home to U.S. President Gerald Ford, who is buried there with his wife Betty. The city’s common modern nickname is the River City due to its proximity to the Grand River, but it has also been known as Furniture City, as five of the world's leading office furniture companies are located there.
