Taking a Trip to Michigan

You don't have to travel abroad to take a fun vacation. Orbitz.com can help you plan a trip to many different destinations across the United States, including Michigan. Travelers might be interested to learn that Michigan is the only state with two peninsulas, and its long coastline connects with four of the Great Lakes.

After a few hours in Michigan, it's easy to see why its name means "large water." Recreational boating is very popular in this region, and more than 64,000 ponds and lakes are scattered throughout the large state. Nature lovers will enjoy visiting the outdoor breweries and wine trails, while history buffs will have a wonderful time at one of the state's many museums.

Best time to take a vacation to Michigan

  • The climate varies throughout the year in Michigan. Temperatures are typically in the double digits, but occasionally they hit single or triple digits during the winter or summer. The best time to visit Michigan is from September to October, when you can experience the beautiful fall foliage. The temperatures usually fall between the low 30s to the low 70s during this time, so wear layers. Snow lovers should visit during the winter, as January boasts an impressive average of 22 snow days per month. February is close behind with 19 snow days. If you're ready to experience everything that Michigan has to offer, book your vacation today through Orbitz.com.
