God's country ... if you love the outdoors (waterfalls, crystal-clear lakes, acres of woods), hunting, fishing, hiking, snow-shoeing, skiing ... then the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a must-see. :) (Although if you want to live there, I recommend also having a love of winter.) It is especially gorgeous in the fall -- when I would argue that the colors out-rival those of New England (granted there are no covered bridges, but one can't have everything). :)
