Looking for the best Airbnb in Michigan for your next trip to the Great Lakes state?
Also known as the Mitten State, Michigan is a popular year-round destination.
You will find the ‘UP” or Upper Peninsula less crowded, than the lower part of the state. A very popular tourist destination, the UP has the mountains and lakes. And lots of history.
The Lower Peninsula is shaped like a mitten and separated from the UP by the Straits of Mackinac. And the two peninsulas are connected together by the Mackinac Bridge.
Michigan has the longest freshwater coastline of just about anywhere in the world. And it is a very popular vacation destination.
One of the things that can make your trip more memorable is finding the ideal Airbnb in Michigan.
Airbnbs are a great alternative option when traveling because they allow you to stay in places that are unique to the specific area you will be traveling to, instead of a vanilla generic hotel room.
They are a great way to meet the locals. And often they are less expensive than hotels or motels.
So, take a look through my list of unique suggestions and find the best Airbnb in Michigan for you!
