The scenic beauty of our state in all four seasons never fails to astound me. This was just posted on one of our local sites - and it might be one of the coolest Michigan experiences I've ever seen.
I didn't know you could do this, but late in the summer, the water is actually warm enough to swim under the Mackinac Bridge. There's a park in Mackinaw City where you can just wade right out there and start swimming under it. I suppose if you were a Diana Nyad type, you could actually swim to the Upper Peninsula.
This link includes a very cool GoPro video of a family swimming under the bridge and under the water. The water looks beautiful. You'll find the link here.
The contrast to the Worst State Ever has never been greater. Ohio has nothing to match this.
