Cheap flights to Michigan

Michigan is a state in the Great Lakes region of the Midwestern United States. Its name, which literally means “large water”, mirrors its terrains and borders which are mostly made up of water. Michigan is the ninth most populous area in the United States, and the 11th biggest state by land area. The state is the only region in the US comprised of two peninsulas, one shaped like slippers, while another is shaped like a mitten. The Upper Peninsula is relatively heavily forested and mountainous, while the Lower Peninsula is the more populated one. With Michigan's beautiful lakes, freshwater coast lines, and upbeat metropolitans, the state proves itself to be one of the more beautiful states in the Mainland.

What to see & do

Lakes, Falls, and Freshwater coasts in Michigan – Michigan is gifted with an abundance of lakes, freshwater bodies, and waterfalls, creating a beautiful and fresh vibe especially in the Upper Peninsula. Travellers who are interested in freshwater activities such as fishing, boating and rafting, are encouraged to sail north of Michigan to the upper slipper, thereafter check out the Tahquamenon Falls, and the Great Lakes area.

Lighthouses in Michigan – Having bodies of water and becoming one of the many gateways in the United States, Michigan has created a total of 150 lighthouses, the most number than any other state in the US to guide seafarers and travellers passing through their coasts. Some of them still functions, but some has been forgotten – creating rather picturesque towers and dotting the coastlines of Michigan. If visiting Michigan, especially the Great Lakes border, don't miss out on these towering lighthouses.

Islands in Michigan – The state is home to numerous large islands perfect for exploration, trekking, and fishing – if travellers are in for that kind of trip. The North Manitou and South Manitou islands, Beaver, and Fox groups in Lake Michigan are the principal ones, followed by Isle Royale and Grand Isle in Lake Superior. Other groups include Marquette, Bois Blanc, and Mackinac in Lake Huron, and Neebish, Sugar, and Drummond Islands in St. Mary's River.

Nightlife in Michigan – Enjoy Jazz music or just dance the night away in the night scene of Michigan. From sports bars to music halls, to trendy scenes and casual drinks, every traveller will find their dose of night life here. Popular night clubs include Amnesia in Detroit, 360 Lounge and Grill in Dearborn, and 621 Club in Lansing.

Eastern Market in Detroit – Produce, cheese, spices, and flower vendors fill the large halls of this quirky market in Detroit, and finding some speciality items such as props and peanut roasters are very easy here. Cafes, ethnic eats, and occasional food trucks also visit the market during the weekdays – so if travellers fancy some souvenir grabbing trip while tasting the local flavours, the Eastern Market will be perfect.
