Michigan is the only state in the country made up of two peninsulas. The Mackinac Bridge spans a five mile stretch of water to connect the two sections. The state is surrounded by four of the five Great Lakes and is often referred to as the Great Lakes State. When in Michigan, it is impossible to be further than six miles from a source of natural water or 85 miles from a Great Lake.
