Michigan
Surrounded by four of the five Great Lakes and comprised of two peninsulas, Michigan is a land of striking extremes and interesting in-betweens. Michigan's lower peninsula is the more populated of the two peninsulas and contains the state's largest cities and industrial areas, but becomes more rugged and forested as you go north. Crossing the Mackinac (Mackinaw) Bridge, Michigan's upper peninsula is far less populated, with many state and national parks, wildlife, waterfalls, and even a few mountains.
