Here in Michigan we know and love our Great Lakes. For those who don't know, here are a few fun facts about our watery wonderland.

Through summer sun and winter snow, Our love for you will ever grow. Okay, I'm not going to rip off "Oh Christmas Tree" and get all poetic and touchy-feely but we do love our lakes and a trip to our favorite can be planned or a spur of the moment thing. We take friends and family to spend a day at the beach, walk the beaches and enjoy the sights and sounds. Have you ever really thought about the "big picture" and what makes our Great Lakes?

We know the Great lakes are huge. In fact, the five Great Lakes and Lake Okeechobee in Florida, are the only lakes visible to the naked eye from space. Watch this video for more on what makes our Great Lakes so great.
