The free guide highlights activities across the state this spring and summer.
The publication will also be offered in a free, universally accessible digital edition, available at this link, giving users to access the guide from computers, smartphones and tablets.

Stories in the 2015 Official State Travel Guide include “National Treasures,” featuring Michigan’s five national parks; “10 Ways to Love Lake Huron;” “My Kind of Beach,” to help visitors find their perfect Michigan beach; and “Golf Style,” highlighting courses throughout the state.
There’s also a story on Detroit, the skyline of which is the cover photo for this year’s guide, as well as stories on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, paddling the Au Sable River, an introduction to sporting clays, and pet friendly destinations.
The guide also includes the popular Michigan Moments section, an events calendar, state park and camping information and contact information for Michigan convention and visitor bureaus and regional tourism associations.
Some 650,000 copies of the warm-weather Pure Michigan Travel Guide will be distributed with the March/April issue of Midwest Living. Later this year, Pure Michigan will also distribute separate fall and winter travel guides, highlighting travel opportunities in Michigan unique to each of those seasons.
