Michigan is an East North Central state with two peninsulas and numerous islands in the Great Lakes. The state has the longest coastline of any state besides Alaska. It is the only state bordered by four of the Great Lakes. Michigan has the most fresh water of any state in the country.
Michigan’s Lower Peninsula is bordered by Lake Michigan to the west, Lakes Huron and Erie to the east, and Indiana and Ohio to the south. Its Upper Peninsula is bordered by the Saint Marys River to the east, the Straits of Mackinac and Lakes Michigan and Huron to the south, Wisconsin to the west, and Lake Superior to the north. The two peninsulas are separate land areas connected by the Mackinac Bridge, which spans five miles across the Straits of Mackinac. About 28 times more people live on the Lower Peninsula than on the Upper Peninsula despite the fact that it is only two-and-a-half times larger in area.
