Michigan is home to Isle Royale National Park and several other national protected areas. It is bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, thus making it the ideal location for fresh water enthusiasts who enjoy boating, water skiing, fishing, and swimming. A person in Michigan is never more than six miles from a natural water source or more than 82 miles from a Great Lakes shoreline.
With the growth of the auto industry in the early 1900s, Michigan underwent a major economic transformation. Automobile manufacturing became a major industry in Detroit and permanently altered the socio-economic life in the US and the world. Jobs were created in Detroit that attracted immigrants from eastern and southern Europe. Detroit boomed through the 1950s, but changes in the manufacturing identity of the city and the nation have altered Detroit's culture and population. Today, many parts of the city have been abandoned, though a strong redevelopment effort in the city's central district is underway.
Michigan has a thriving tourism industry. Destinations draw vacationers, hunters, and nature enthusiasts from across the United States and Canada. Favorite Detroit sites include The Henry Ford, Motor City, Greektown, and the Detroit Zoo. The Great Lakes Circle Tour is a designated scenic road system connecting all of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.
