Michigan (pronounced [ˈmɪʃɪɡən]) is a Midwestern state of the United States, located in the east north central portion of the country. It was named after Lake Michigan, whose name was a French adaptation of the Ojibwe term mishigami, meaning “large water” or “large lake”.[2][3]

Bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, plus Lake Saint Clair, Michigan has the longest freshwater shoreline in the United States, the ninth longest total shoreline (including island shorelines),[4] and in 2005 had more registered recreational boats than any state except California and Florida.[5] A person in Michigan is never more than 85 miles (137 km) from open Great Lakes water and is never more than 6 miles (10 km) from a natural water source. for more click here
