My home town is located in what is commonly known as Central to Northern Michigan. Which central is exactly what I consider us to be. Travel an hour in any one direction and you have an abundance of opportunities for fun, cultural, seasonal activities.
Travel an hour to the North brings you to Traverse City.
The home of The National Cherry Festival, beautiful beaches and wineries, Grand Traverse Bay, and The TC Film Festival (founded by filmmaker Michael Moore).

Travel an hour to the South brings you to Grand Rapids.
Home of the ArtPrize, Van Andel Arena, Frederik Meijer Gardens, John Ball Park Zoo and West Michigan Whitecaps.
Feeding birds at the zoo…
An hour to the West brings you to Ludington.
The home of the S.S. Badger and beautiful beaches.

Travel an hour to the East brings you to Mount Pleasant.
Home of the Soaring Eagle Casino and Central Michigan University.
Michigan is truly a beautiful state! See Pure Michigan! and the Michigan flickr group.

Your state is truly beautiful, and I love the thoughtful, positive vibe of your blog.ReplyDelete
I live in Chicago and went to college in Northwest Indiana so I always feel "close" to Michigan, though there's still much more of your state for me to experience.
Thanks for the tour!
What a beautiful state you live in! And how lovely that you can be in so many interesting places within such a short time. Beautiful photos!ReplyDelete

Wow Chas - you really are central to everything! We live in a great state, don't we?!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tour. My brother-in-law and his wife were in Grand Rapids for years. Blog-trotting brings back memories!ReplyDelete
In the four season collage, it's funny, but I think winter is the prettiest! Summer is my favorite season though.ReplyDelete
