Say what? Michigan is number one, the best state in the country? True, according to the website Thrillist.com.
Okay, actually, the article is a bit subjective, but editor/writers
figured that since they have already ranked states according to food/drink and beer, it was time to rank states "based on everything," to see who came out on top. They threw in famous people, physical beauty, inventions, the kitchen sink and everything bigger than a bread basket. Sure it's their opinion, but, hey, right now I'm loving their opinion.
Here is what they had to say about Michigan.
Far too much of the Michigan narrative centers on Detroit and its many issues. The Motor City’s become a scrappily rising underdog you can’t help but root for, but Michigan’s greatest strengths lie in the state as a whole. Did you know Michigan has more coastline than any state other than Alaska? Did you know it has such an embarrassment of beer riches that you can easily hit Bell’s and Founders in the same afternoon? Did you know the UP is so remote and uniquely beautiful that it almost feels like a secret 51st state where they inexplicably love British meat pies? Did you know most residents are more than happy to apologize for Kid Rock? If you answered yes to at least three of these than you already understand Michigan’s charms. If you answered no to these questions, you should listen to the dulcet tones of Michigan tourism pitchman Tim Allen and get yourself there immediately.

Right on, guys, right on!
