People who have never been to MI don’t think what they’re missing.
When our wife agreed to visit our lake house state for the first time, every one of us saw the Detroit River, Port Huron, Mackinaw City, & the dunes of Lake MI.
I also took her to our family’s hunting lake house in Alpena County & every one of us stayed there for a week hiking & cooking delicious food the entire time. Sure it was a rustic experience with no running water, but every one of us had loads of fun along the way; By the time our trips were finally over, she was convinced that she wanted to transfer with me to MI. My extended family is here & I had only left the state for a few years while in undergraduate university. The number of lakes in north Washtenaw county is far beyond what she was used to in her lake house state. On top of that, several of these lakes are safe to swim in & don’t have venomous water moccasins or man-eating alligators & crocodiles. Both of us eventually found a small townhouse to rent in east Ann Arbor near the exit to U.S. 23. This location gives us access to stores in both Ann Arbor & Ypsilanti. With all of the cannabis dispensaries opening in MI since recreational weed was legalized here in 2018, the prices keep dropping because the demand isn’t matching the glut in supply. I can’t tell you how several dispensaries show up on our WeedMaps app whenever I search for our location in Ann Arbor. The number of cannabis dispensaries increases if I widen that net into Wayne County.
