Welcome to Pure Michigan

Welcome to the Michigan Office of Tourism's online training programme. We’re here to help you learn why this Great Lakes State is the real America.

The State of Michigan is blessed with the riches of unspoiled nature: the nation's longest freshwater coastline, lakes that feel like oceans, shimmering beaches, glorious sunrises and sunsets, daytime skies of the deepest blue, night time skies scattered with stars.

As you begin to go through the training programme, we think you’ll agree!
