The state of Michigan lies in the north of the USA in the region of the Great Lakes, and borders Canada. Michigan is primarily a large peninsula with Lake Huron to the east and Lake Michigan to the west. Michigan is famous for being the birthplace of the automobile, but in addition to its fascinating history, Michigan has many national parks with stunning scenery.
Michigan holidays make for a great break or family holiday no matter what time of year. Summers are hot and sunny, autumn is beautiful when the leaves turn red and gold, and staying in a log cabin surrounded by snow in winter is an unforgettable experience. The most convenient airports for Michigan are Lansing, Detroit and Chicago. Hiring a car is highly recommended for exploring the more remote parts of the state. Michigan uses Eastern Standard Time, five hours behind GMT.
One of the top destinations in Michigan is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. This beautiful area of sand dunes, beaches and forests is a must-see for Michigan holidays, and is perfect for those travelling with children.

For those interested in history, the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn and Fort Mackinac are perfect for touching base after a few days in the wild. A wide range of accommodation is available to suit all tastes and budgets. A popular choice is to stay in a log cabin surrounded by nature, where you can only hope you'll get snowed in.
