Michigan has so many amazing spots that it's hard to really pinpoint what the BEST cities are, but we can narrow them down to 10 that perfectly describes everything about our state that is so unique and awesome. We have one of the most historic states in the country that continues to provide so much to so many. On top of that, it's a great place to vacation, and it's been in the last 15 years we've seen more people come to Michigan as a destination than ever before.

There are some serious honorable mentions that didn't quite make the list. The Pictured Rocks are probably the most beautiful natural sites Michigan has to offer. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes is another amazing site, just be careful about running down the steep dune because it'll take you over an hour to get back up. Mackinac City is another resort town that brings most of its money in during the summer and truly is an exciting place to spend a vacation.
