From swimming to boating, being on the water is a top choice for Michiganders. If you don't have a pool or know someone who does, hit a public beach. If you don't have a boat, make friends with someone who does or rent one for a day.

If you prefer to stay on dry land go golfing at one of the countless courses in Michigan. How about getting some friends and family together for a backyard barbecue? Throw in some cornhole matches and top the night off around a bonfire.

How about camping? Whether you prefer camping or glamping you can find awesome options for both right here in Michigan. If you have small kids and don't want to take them too far from home - make a night out of it and pitch a tent in the backyard. Talk about making memories and why not make some Smores too?

There are surely more than 12 things that Michiganders enjoy doing throughout the summer months. These 12 things are just idea starters to get you excited for summer 2022. If you have some suggestions, let me know and I will add them to my list.

You can go above and beyond and host a themed summertime party. I went to a gothic barbecue last year and it was hilarious.
