Got your total? Let's see how you did.

40 or More Points = You Are Pure Michigan! You are the epitome of a true Michigander. You've done it all, from snowmobiling in the U.P. to enjoying a coney dog in Detroit. You've probably taken a photo by the Mackinac Bridge and don't mind Michigan's winter storms. People might even come to you for recommendations! Keep enjoying all that Michigan has to offer!

30-39 Points = True Michigander You're well-versed in Michigan's culture, having experienced most of what the state has to offer. You've likely camped in a state park, and taken a trip along the shore of Lake Michigan. Keep up the good work, and maybe take in a Tigers game or a trip to the Soo Locks this year!

20-29 Points = Seasoned Michigander You know your way around Michigan, but there's definitely more to enjoy! You've probably enjoyed the state's fall colors and craft breweries. Maybe this year's the year to take that trip to the Upper Peninsula and check out Pictured Rocks and polish off some pasties.

10-19 Points = Casual Michigander You've got a decent grasp on what it means to be a Michigander, but there's much more to it than what you've experienced so far! Head "Up North" for some pure Michigan outdoor fun, or plan a weekend concert getaway!

0-9 Points = Newbie Michigander You haven't been here long, have you? That's OK. We welcome you with open arms! Consider this a bucket list of things you should try!
