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.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Metro Times has been keeping Detroit informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources. A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Metro Times. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
