employers are the worse - 6/10/2015
Grew up in michigan and moved back here 10 years ago. Worse decision we ever made. Employers in northern michigan pay poorly and treat employees like animals. Cost of living up here is expensive and most people have to work 2 or 3 jobs to make ends meet. Beautiful state and lots to do all year if you like the outdoors. Wages are bad the local saying is "view of the bay is worth half the pay." Sad isn't it.

Michigan - 6/4/2015
Michigan is a great place to live. You will experience all 4 seasons and have an opportunity to enjoy the great attractions. One of the best main places to experience culture and night life is Downtown Detroit. The festivals are amazing; I love the various cultures, cuisine, River Walk, and convenient access to Canada.

Micigan Sucks - 2/11/2015
I hate it here. I HATE IT. Ypsi, Detroit, ann arbor, Dearborn, inkster, Belleville Washtenaw county, wayne county lansing I lived there or visited. And I have family here. The old newspaper articles are a witness to crime in various cities that cops do not notice or how about the many bikers with liquor bottles, drugs that book bags just do not trick you to believe they are students. You will see crime happen and the police do to and ...ya both watch. Or how about police cars parked at the back of drug dealers homes. Unfortunately it is the only reason that I stayed. I did miss out on my life. There are all mental ill released patients, developmentally disturbed, allot of students and LOADS AND LOADS OF EXCONVICTS and CRIMINALs. The drug dealers enlarge their sales to the suburbs clientele with no problem of projecting new areas and larger sales of crack and heroin. The people are so mean IT IS DYSFUNCTIONAL AND CORRUPT...the police and judicial system too and I work for the judicial system. The Bisexuals, gays and lesbians love it here. It s a dark hell here in Michigan. I have stayed because I am income dependent like I make allot of money and of my family BUT I HATE IT HERE. The homosexuals are aggressive and the men well Men in Detroit are known for putting their dates in porn without their knowledge or consent. They are also known to bring you a old packed bologna sandwich for a date and that's if they have enough decency to have a date or know how and what the word date means with all the woman giving it away alone or with their gf to the man. The woman are known to ride around with their nude bottoms or tops out the car on beautiful fall argumentative days. Did I say I hate it here?

Michigan - 11/18/2014
Michigan is a wonderful place to live if you love the four seasons and all the activities and festivities that come along with those seasons. It's a state for nature lover's where you may enjoy Camping, Hicking, Fishing, Canoeing, Kayakers, and even Skiing, Snowboarding and Ice Skating just to name a few. There's so much to explore with all the beautiful Crystal Lakes. In fact there are many Michiganders who have never seen the wonderous beauty of Michigan themselves. Want to know more about Michigan.

Can't Wait To Retire, I'm OUT of Here - 5/25/2014
I am not a good reviewer of Michigan (Flint area). I hate it here. I hate the cold, the long winters, the icy roads, and I hate the muggy summers. I am retiring as soon as I can and leaving.

Huron-Clinton Metroparks - 3/15/2014
Metroparks in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area are the best. There are winter and summer activities all the time. There is golf, disc golf, bicycle paths, kayaking on the Huron River, picnicking, hiking, and cross country skiiing. Anything you can do outdoors in nature is there. They have fun educational outdoor activities for the whole family.

Outdoor Mecca - 4/7/2013
Michigan is a wonderful state for the outdoors. The beaches are amazing. The rivers and lakes are excellent for weekend trips and camping/canoe/kayaking/hunting/fishing. I have spent 30 yrs hear and if it weren't for the cold winters, I wouldn't think of leaving. If you love the outdoors, this is a great place to be.

Michigan - 8/25/2012
My husband is q Michigan native. However, he move out of the state due to his career. We now have move back to the state and have live here for 5 yrs and we have really enjoyed it. Michigan, especially the Detroit area is just like in many states, yes...the economy is slow, yes...crime has overtaken some cities, especially Detroit and some surrounding areas, yes...the school system can improve, yes:..the number of abandoned buildings are a major eyesore. Overall, this state is very beautiful. We love the nature parks and trails, the crystal clear lakes, the multicultural festivals in the summer, the easy access to Canada, which we live only 4 hrs away from Niagara Falls in the Canadian side. We love the four seasons. Bottom line, you make the place you live how you want to be. If we ever move from Michigan, we would like to move to another state the offers the same or more like it.

climate - 7/28/2012
I love Michigan. I have lived here all my life and love the four seasons. Snowmobilng in the winter, fishing and swimming in the summer. The highs you get when spring comes and the anticipation of getting the annuals planted and watching the perennials come to life. It is a great place to live.
