Michigan has good beer, legal weed, few natural disasters, and lots of lakes and trees. When poo poo goes south, it'll be the best place to hide.

I'm in Michigan right now, it's ok, lots of nice bike trails. I went on a tour of Quicken Loans in Detroit and they had a model of downtown with all the buildings they operated out of colored red and it looked like something an evil villain would make. I don't drink but my brother does and he usually gets Bell's, so maybe try that out next time.

I also go to Wisconsin to visit relatives. There's lots of corn and soybeans. Madison is pretty cool if you like college towns, and you can cut through the capitol building if you don't feel like walking around it. There's also The House on the Rock, take your parents to it and they'll get to point out all the things they remember seeing and owning, but beyond "a lot of stuff" it's not that crazy.

Oh, and Michigan is responsible for Little Caesar’s, not great pizza by any stretch, but a great benefit to the working class.

BUT they’re also responsible for Hungry Howie’s, an abomination that erases any of the goodwill brought forward by Little Caesar’s and then some.

e: I’ve just been informed that they’re also behind Jet’s Pizza which is actually pretty good, so that swings them back to being alright, but on thin loving ice.

Good news, OP, as climate change devastates our planet, Michigan will be one of the few areas that may see a net gain in terms of seasonability/habitability. At least until we all die, that is

I have lived in Michigan most of my life OP, I quite like it here.

Lots of nature. Pretty chill place imo. I heard that here you are never more than six miles from a body of water, I will choose to believe it.

It's like that over the Mackinac Bridge, once side is Michigan, the other side is the U.P. and it is very different.

Much like how it isn't 'ill in noise' Mackinac isn't 'mack in ack', it's Mack-in-aw.

Also, KBS is overrated, and it's now virtually impossible to get. (Frankly I don't see why they don't just follow the wine business model - which is simple supply and demand - and simply charge hundreds of dollars a bottle for it.)

It's your HPV, Veronica. I'm just carrying it.

Michigan has incredibly great breweries, including Founder's (try Kentucky Breakfast Stout, an imperial stout brewed with coffee and chocolate, or just go for anything because goddamn is Founder's good), Bell's (go for Two-Hearted, their signature IPA), Short's (Soft Parade is their most popular beer and it's a unique berry rye ale), Atwater (Vanilla Java Porter is their most popular and it's a refreshing smooth porter made with vanilla and coffee), Griffin Claw (their most popular beer is Norm's Raggedy rear end IPA, but I'm partial to Lemon Session, a Belgian style tripel brewed lemon juice and zest), Jolly Pumpkin (sour beer paradise, I miss this place, just go for anything because it's all superb, but Oro de Calabaza and La Roja are probably their most popular) and New Holland (the brewery known most for Dragon's Milk, a very unique, rich barrel-aged imperial stout) There's even excellent mead in the state from places like B. Nektar Meadery (Zombie Killer is their signature cherry mead, but man, just go hog wild because this place is delicious) and Schramm's (honestly, I've been to Schramm's only once and don't remember it much, but it appears their most popular mead is Black Agnes, a black current mead).

While my current city/state (Columbus) is no slouch on beer either, I really miss the beer from when I lived in Detroit. So much amazing variety.

Beer is legit the only thing Michigan can culturally brag about, and I hope the same thing happens for weed. Michigan hates being sober.

Many of the Little Caesars in the Flint area sold "stromboli" which was actually a calzone. Not sure if that's changed in the last decade, but it was much better than everything else sold at Little Caesars.

Founders actually got their poo poo together this year and KBS was everywhere. I still see it on the shelves now, nearly six months after it's released.

And downstate people get deer season day off too. It was a weird culture thing when I moved from KY to MI. But I used to get the day before the KY Derby off so different priorities I guess.
