Michigan

Michigan (English: Michigan, [ˈmɪʃɨɡən]) is a state in the Great Lakes and Midwest region of the United States. The state’s name comes from the Ojibwe word mishigamaa, meaning “big water” or “big lake.” With a population of about 10 million, Michigan is the tenth most populous state and the eleventh largest by area in the United States. The capital is the city of Lansing, and the largest city is Detroit. The Detroit metropolitan area is among the most populous and largest metropolitan economies in the country.

Michigan is the only state that consists of two peninsulas. The lower peninsula is glove-shaped. The Upper Peninsula (often referred to in English as ” the UP “) is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, an 8-mile channel that connects Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The Mackinac Bridge connects the two peninsulas. There are another 64,980 inland lakes in Michigan.
