Welcome to the Michigan Wiki: a wiki dedicated to the sharing of information about the culture, places and people of this Great Lakes State.

The wiki is created and edited by you! Please feel free to contribute by creating a new article on a Michigan-related topic, editing an existing article to add more information, or uploading images to enhance this site. Not sure what you can do? Check out the welcome page for new editors! If you just want to experiment, feel free to play in the sand dunes.
