You never know what you’ll discover in your own backyard. That couldn’t be more true than Michigan is to me. Entering the lower half of Michigan is roughly less than an hours drive from Chicago and the Upper Peninsula is more of a 6 hour drive. Both are incredibly worth it and because of their proximity, it has been one of my favorite to pack up my bag, hop into the car and get away for the weekend to be one with nature.
From picturesque sunrises to sunsets, to endless beaches to the breathtaking Pictured Rocks coastline, Michigan and it’s beautiful landscape has formed a special place in my heart. Whether I’m overlooking Lake Michigan or Lake Superior, it’s the place where I go to escape from chaotic life of the city, well just everyday life and has helped bring me back to reality. You can’t describe it better than simply Pure Michigan.
