[Blog] What does Pure Michigan mean to you?

Pure Michigan means something special.  And you don't just have to take our word for it.

In June, the website Thrillst ranked all 50 states, and Pure Michigan came in first. Here's what they said:

"The Motor City’s become a scrappily rising underdog you can’t help but root for, but Michigan’s greatest strengths lie in the state as a whole. Did you know Michigan has more coastline than any state other than Alaska? Did you know it has such an embarrassment of beer riches that you can easily hit Bell’s and Founders in the same afternoon? Did you know the UP is so remote and uniquely beautiful that it almost feels like a secret 51st state where they inexplicably love British meat pies? Did you know most residents are more than happy to apologize for Kid Rock? If you answered yes to at least three of these than you already understand Michigan’s charms. If you answered no to these questions, you should listen to the dulcet tones of Michigan tourism pitchman Tim Allen and get yourself there immediately." 

So, we wanted to know, 'What does Pure Michigan mean to you?' and we traveled from coast to coast to find out.  Watch our video above to hear about what Michiganders love about our number one ranked state.
