Michigan is a unique state. It contains islands, forests, mountains and many lakes. It is also home to America's three major automobile manufacturers and the only state made up of two peninsulas. Whether you're looking for a single family home or a high-rise apartment building, you've got thousands of possibilities in Michigan.

The peninsulas that make the Wolverine State look like the shape of a mitten divide its extensive landscape. The "thumb" part of the mitten is a peninsula that appears to be hitchhiking into Lake Huron and the Saginaw Bay. The "fingers" part of the mitten is made up of the Keweenaw Peninsula, which is in what is called the Copper Country region of the state. The Leelanau Peninsula is located in the Northern Lower Michigan region. Michigan has the second longest shoreline of any state, measuring 3,288 miles. Several islands dot the coasts of the state as well, many of them named after indigenous Native Americans and later, French settlers that arrived in the 17th century.

If you enjoy the outdoors, Michigan is a great place to rent. It has the biggest State park and forest system in the U.S. with 78 State parks and 6 State forests. Camping, kayaking and hiking are three of the most popular outdoor activities here. This might be due to the fact that no matter where you live in the state, you are no more than 6 miles from one of over 11,000 inland lakes. You can take a lighthouse tour, swim in one or all 5 of the Great Lakes or go morel mushroom picking. Fishing and hunting are popular throughout the state, too, but if you're more of an indoor person, you can check out world-class shopping or enjoy one of the many casinos or museums in Michigan. You can also tour a Ford Motor Company plant or marvel at the wonders contained in the Henry Ford Museum. Wherever you live, there's always something interesting or exciting to do in Michigan.
