Michigan Beachfront Resorts

While not a huge state, Michigan claims a lot of waterfront. In MIchigan you are never more than about ten Kilometers away from a lake whether it is a small lake or one of the Great Lakes. Michigan has access to Erie, Michigan, Huron, and Lake Superior. The total amount of coastline is enormous and comparable to about any other State in the country. 

On the Map above you can see the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan.
