Michigan State Capitol

Michigan is located next to the Great Lakes on the northern border of the United States. The state borders four of the five Great Lakes: Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Erie, and Lake Huron. Proximity to the lakes gives Michigan very wet and snow-filled winters and warm, humid summers. Several public and private universities and colleges are located here. Michigan is also the center of the American automotive industry.

Detroit is the largest metropolitan area in Michigan. Called “The Motor City” or “Motown,” Detroit has a long history in the automobile industry and the music industry. Museums documenting the rise of American car companies, such as Ford, Cadillac, and General Motors, are scattered around the city. Music lovers can learn about the racial integration of popular music and the rise of “Motown-style” soul music at the Motown Historical Museum.

Michigan real estate includes high-rise residential buildings and historic neighborhoods in Detroit, and beautiful vacation homes along the Great Lakes. Suburban areas offer contemporary homes, Gilded Age mansions, and grand estates.
