10 Nicknames For Michigan You Might Not Know
Michigan has some good nicknames. "The mitten", "Great Lakes State" and "Wolverine State". What about the nicknames that are less common. These are new to me so let's get to work.
Nicknames for the Michigan are fun and they explain a story about our state. The obvious "mitten" is because that's what we look like. "Great Lakes State", do I need to explain that? We have other cool nicknames like "orange barrel state", visitors from other states must get annoyed by the non stop road construction that is layered with "orange barrels".
Let's be honest, there's a good chance that you may have heard some of these nicknames in the past. If not, you'll be in the know when someone uses one of these terms. It makes me feel better knowing these nicknames so I don't look like a schmuck.
I didn't see any nicknames that could've made the list like "Stink Bug State" or "The Fudge State" but we will have some fun looking at these nicknames for our beautiful state.
