It’s no secret that Michigan is known as the Great Lakes State. We’re undoubtedly lucky to have access to some of the most beautiful bodies of freshwater in the world — and Detroit is within driving distance of several of them. Here are nine gorgeous lakes in the Motor City area that you simply must explore as the weather gets warmer.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
