What's not to love about hiking, boating, swimming, or doing anything outdoors in Michigan? Apparently nothing. This is according to a new article by Tripsavvy, which rated Michigan as the best place for outdoor enthusiasts. The article was about the best place to travel in 2020 for history buffs, foodies, honeymooners, fine dining, culture and so much more, but Michigan won with outdoor lovers.

There are so many things to see outdoors throughout Michigan and the article highlighted some, which you may or may not have gone to. One of the biggest ones the article talks about is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, which if you have never gone here, you need to just for views. And no, you don't have to climb the dunes if you don't want to. Plus the article also highlighted our longest bridge in the Mackinac Bridge and one of the most beautiful things in Michigan, The Tunnel of Trees on M-119.

What really won Michigan over besides all of the above was all of the interesting and one of kind things in the UP. One that was talked about most is Kitch-iti-kipi, which is located near Manistique and has some of the clearest water you will ever see. It's quite a trek to get here, but it is well worth it.
