Michigan is claiming word supremacy of the length of freshwater coastline (probably that fact is being challenged by Canada and Finland) with its more than 11000 lakes. But in any case, wherever you are in Michigan, you are about 5 miles away from water.
The Grand Traverse County alone has 50 lakes. Big and small, glacial and man-made, some are inland and some are connected to Lake Michigan. Some are deep and others are shallow, with cypress trunks rising from the waters. Some lakes surrounded by forest, others are in deep valleys, while yet other lakes have huge dunes that tower over them.
