Going Into These 10 Caves In Michigan Is Like Entering Another World
Michigan isn’t exactly known for its caves, but maybe that’s because they’re quite a bit different from the underground rock formations found in states with more volcanic activity. That doesn’t mean we don’t have them. In fact, thanks to the sandstone cliffs found in places like Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, or the many, many caverns created by miners in the 19th century in Copper Country in the Upper Peninsula, we have many more caves than you might expect. They also come as dramatic ice formations, created along our lake shores during the winter months.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
