Michigan Topography and Natural Attractions

The name Michigan is derived from the Native American word "michigana", which means "great lake".  Michigan consists of the Upper Peninsula and the Lower Peninsula, which are joined by a bridge over the Straits of Mackinac.  The Lower Peninsula is more densely populated than the Upper Peninsula, and features sandy beaches on its western, Lake Michigan shoreline.  The Upper Peninsula's terrain varies from swampland in the northeast, near Lake Superior, to low mountains in the west.  Michigan's lakes and the natural scenery of Mackinac Island, Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore attract visitors each summer.  For additional Michigan travel and tourism information, visit the official Michigan tourism site and Michigan Atlas
