Things That Michiganders Do Better Than Anyone Else!
I, for one, love the state of Michigan. And I get damn sick & tired of hearing other state residents say they hate it here and wanna move. Well, then, MOVE and get it over with. Who needs ya.
However, the rest of us who dig the state we live in have our own reasons:
1) Endless summer festivals
2) Snow for Christmas time
3) Beautiful fall colors
4) Great Lakes give the state an oceanic feel
5) The unique beauty of the Upper Peninsula
6) Top Ten Universities
…..and many more reasons.
Well, someone from onlyinyourstate.com has gone and put together another list comprised of eleven things we in Michigan do better than anyone else.
Among the eleven are:
BOATING (nobody else does it better)
CEREAL (Post & Kellogg's)
GORGEOUS SHORELINES (was there any doubt?)
LIGHTHOUSES (we have the most in the country!)
MAGIC (visit Colon and Marshall!)
SODA POP (Vernors, in particular!)
“REALLY?” you ask. Yup, really.
When you see and read the article for yourself, it’ll make more sense.

However, there is one important thing they forgot to add to this list...
WE KNOW HOW TO ROCK.
