Warmer weather means the call to explore Michigan from shoreline to shoreline is hard to resist.
Michigan is home to thousands of inland lakes, hundreds of miles of Great Lakes shoreline and more than 100 state parks and harbors. If there were ever a state built for exploration, it’s the one we call home.

And what can you do with the cash you save on that dream rig? Well, here are a couple of suggestions to get you rolling…
Explore the Island
Mackinac Island is a must-visit destination for Michiganders and MFB members can also enjoy savings on a stay at the Grand Hotel (see page 4 for details).
The timeless experience of this unique island located in Lake Huron is just part of the overall adventure. With numerous state parks, campgrounds, shorelines and worthy destinations located nearby, a trip to Mackinac Island offers the opportunity to see much more than the island.
Tour the state by boat
The inland waterway located in the northwest Lower Peninsula is a 38-mile stretch of rivers and lakes that allows visitors to see our home state in a special way. Connecting Crooked Lake to Lake Huron, the waterway winds and weaves its way through beautiful forests, wetlands and iconic towns like Indian River, Topinabee and Cheboygan.
Again, there’s no shortage of parks, campgrounds and lodging options, making a journey down the waterway a family-friendly destination.
See the Motor City in a new way
Detroit is well-known as the state’s largest city. But did you know the Motor City lies along the shores of one of the state’s largest rivers and is an easy journey by water to Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair?
A journey along the Detroit River allows you to see the city in a whole new way and also provides passage to some of the best fishing and boating the state has to offer.
