    Home, sweet home!

    • Shane in response to Madonna Waltz

      Ah yes…Michigan: Home sweet home…to horrible drivers, and fat, pale women with bad teeth.

  2. Chris

    I love MI as it is a great state to travel, esp. up north in the summer and fall. As much as I say I hate the snow and cold and threaten to move, I love my state and don’t think I will ever move as it is where I truly belong.

  3. Pure Michigan

    Great post – We live in a wonderful state! To learn more about living and traveling in Michigan, be sure to visit michigan.org.

  4. joe jackson

    Family, friends, and sports teams are a nice reason to stay in Michigan. However, Oregon is better. After 32 years in Michigan, I have been here since 1997, and it is WAY better. Watching the Tigers online tonight.

  5. Jim.

    I love Michigan. That and so much more. Pure Michigan.

  6. Matt Silvas

    Thank’s for showing the pictures .so you got to love Miching.hope that some day I can take a trip up north and enjoy some good time it would be great !!!!

  7. North Star

    I grew up by Lake Michigan, left to live in Wyoming, on the Gulf in Florida, and in upstate Wisconsin. I couldn’t wait to get home (27 years later) and will never leave again. Up North has my heart…and I belong here.

  8. Jackie

    Michigan is very beautiful. A waterfall wonderland, which they didn’t show a single one! The U.P is especially a vacation paradise. I was born there & lived my first 49 years there. I will gladly go back for visits & vacations, but I can’t handle the cold winters any more.

  9. Gary

    I have lived in Mich , Minn , Colo , Wisc and have traveled several of the states. They all have there up sides and many down sides but over all you can not beat this place called Michigan , especially if you get to live in a place called Munising. Nothing Like it ! Where I live we have no traffic jams , no lines at the post office , not terrorists, no earthquakes , no tornadoes , no hurricanes, no flooding to speak of ,No real bad crime , very friendly people , not over populated , you know your neighbor , your grocery store workers , your gas station attendants , It,s never too hot , not that much humidity , plenty of fresh air , not many pot holes. Have I said enough ? I love it here. Even over Colorado.

    • Kirby Milton in response to Gary

      Yes you forgot to mention fishing- esp. near Munising.

  10. Rex Sevenski

    lived here my hole life, 50?. Although this winter was the worst, only because im paying for it now as a adult.living in the country, There is nothing better than a Michigan Summer.

  11. leonard

    I can’t believe how many people that live in the lower peninsula have never crossed the bridge to explore the U.P. its a one of a kind gem. Not many places in the lower 48 like it. Go see!!!

  12. bonnieburkhart

    Iloved all the pictures speacially, the Squrial

  13. Laura peters

    I’ve lived in Michigan all my life and have no
    Desire to live in any other State.Their are
    So many things to do here. Sure we had a
    Long winter but no hurricanes;;earthquakes
    :::fires:::mud slides so I think I can put up
    With te snow.Only thing I would like to live
    Further up in the U P more nature and
    Beauty.

    • Kelly Stanis in response to Laura peters

      I have to say that I love Michigan…Have lived here all my life…The hard part for me is winter and arthritis…The aching joints is the only thing I could do without and I have tried everything….Otherwise the hiking is great, the wild life amazing, the shopping fun, and the people well are good….California is beautiful but the politics and taxes are a major turn off….All the states have something to offer…I don’t like the “Pure Michigan” thing…It was just fine calling it the Great Lake State…It was even better when it was the Automotive Capital of the World…those days are gone though…I love the UP too…Great people up there too!!

  14. skip

    Love mi. In the summer and fall but I spend my winters in Florida you don’t have to shovel rain

    • nikki in response to skip

      You might want to add Torch Lake. Such beautiful water!

  15. Don

    I am proud to say that I was born in the quaint town of Cadillac, Michigan. I have my love for Michigan and it will never go away. But, Idaho is where I have lived for 34 years and it is God’s Country. Beautiful 4 seasons with a short winter in the southwestern region of the state. All the snow you would ever want within 30 minutes. Spring, Summer and Fall–unbelievable! Still, I do love Pure Michigan, but must stay in Idaho for she is just too good to be true. :)

  16. Richard Persley

    I have sailed around the world many times, have stepped on every piece of land on the planet just about and nothing compares to Michigan. I moved back to the Detroit metro area just be home again.

  17. Tony

    I hate to be that guy, but number six is a sunset, not a sunrise. Detroit is on the north side of the river, and that’s looking from Belle Isle towards the bridge, so it’s looking west. Really beautiful string of photos, though!
