Michigan is a great place to live, work, and play. With the Great Lakes and the over 11,000 inland lakes, we live in a water lover's paradise.

On top of that, we have so many places to go camping and enjoy the outdoors with our friends and family. With all of that being said it might not come as a surprise that these three Michigan cities have made the list of top summer travel destinations in Michigan.

THREE MICHIGAN CITIES MAKE THE LIST OF TOP SUMMER TRAVEL DESTINATIONS

Wallethub.com recently came out with a list of the top summer travel destinations in America and the Mitten state had several cities make the cut.

HOW DID WALLETHUB COME UP WITH THE LIST?

In order to determine the best summer vacation spots, WalletHub compared 100 of the most populated metro areas (or Metropolitan Statistical Areas, as identified by the U.S. Census Bureau) across six key categories:

1) Travel Costs & Hassles

2) Local Costs

3) Attractions

4) Weather

5) Activities

6) Safety
