The Mackinac Bridge.

If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you. Those are the words emblazoned, in Latin, on our state flag — and for this year's Made in Michigan guide, we did just that. Since we cover the Motor City each week in Metro Times, we decided to set our sights on the rest of the state for this issue. What follows is our guide to some of our favorite Michigan road trips: Flint, Traverse City, Mackinac Island, Port Austin, Cross Village, Grand Rapids, and Marquette. We rounded up some of our state's top resorts, and some of its best restaurants. We also met up with a guy who moved from Los Angeles to Detroit to make guitars and rounded up some of our favorite Michigan-made products. Enjoy our pleasant peninsula.
