The Great Lakes include Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario and form the largest body of fresh water in the world. Michigan is nicknamed the Great Lake State because it’s shores touch all of the Great Lakes except Lake Ontario and is home to more than 11,000 inland lakes. Standing anywhere in the state, a person is within in 85 miles of one of the Great Lakes. I was born and raised in Michigan so it holds special place in my heart. It is often thought of for the big three auto manufactures and for being cold. But I am here to tell you that all the lakes and the woodlands make for some incredible exploring. Special shout out to my parents who took us “up north” often and let us get dirty.
