As a Michigan native, I may be a bit biased – but I think Michigan is one of the most underrated states in the country. My midwest home state is home to the massive Great Lakes, and more than 11,000 inland lakes. I grew up on a lake and there are so many fun water sports and activities you’ll enjoy.
