The 10 best things to do in Michigan

America’s mitten is commonly called Pure Michigan—and with good reason. The Midwest vibe of friendly folks and phenomenal lakes makes it a four-season paradise, a high-five all year round, if you will. From gorgeous summers full of verdant trees and flowers in bloom to winters covered in sweeping blankets of freshly fallen snow, the kaleidoscopic wonder of autumn and everything budding in return to life come spring, Michigan is always a magical place to be. Here are some of the Great Lakes State’s best things to do no matter the season. Done something on this list and loved it? Share it with the hashtag #TimeOutDoList and tag @TimeOutEverywhere.
