Michigan is celebrating her birthday today. It was on this day in 1837, Michigan was admitted into the Union as the 26th state. We built cars, made hits in Motown and offer some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.

That picture is from the beautiful beach in Frankfort. Mrs. Pants and I have road tripped up there for the past 5 years. The Michigan coast is amazing, especially up by the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. We did the "Dune Climb" a few years ago and can't wait to do it again.

A great way to appreciate the beauty is a good ol' fashioned ROAD TRIP! "Only in your state" mapped out the Ultimate Michigan Road trip, complete with pretty pictures. You can see that by clicking here. It's fun to see how many you have been to.
