Michigan, which is the only bi-peninsular state in America, is split into two part by the Great Lakes, giving it one of its nicknames, the Great Lakes State. Michigan is also known as the Wolverine State, the Automotive State, and the Winter Water Wonderland. From the capital of Lansing to the largest city, Detroit, there are homes for sale and excellent real estate in Michigan located prime locations at great prices. Michigan is home to a great deal of history, from the prehistoric colonization and long lasting civilization of the American Indians to the colonial period of French and English influence to the later colonizations by further waves of American and European immigrants. This cultural diversity is reflected in the culture, arts, and celebrations of Michigan, setting it apart as a great place to experience America for the melting pot that it is.
