Guess what. It’s time to wish one of your dearest friends a happy birthday. No, we’re not talking about your sorority sister or your BFF since kindergarten. We’re talking about that one place that is near and dear to your heart. That’s right, it’s Michigan’s birthday – its 179th, to be precise. And to celebrate, we’re giving you a few reminders about why the Great Lakes State is the very best in all the union.
These are obviously only some of the top reasons why Michigan is the best. We invite you to make a little wish for the Mitten and share with us the many reasons why you love Michigan the most.
