“FREE Attractions

in the State of Michigan”

Article written by Michael Joseph Lynch

Years ago, I wrote a book called; “Over 600 FREE Attractions in the Midwestern States”. Even thought my book has a copyright from the Library of Congress, I have not promoted it at all. It can be located on, but I will soon pull it so I can update the information to make it more presentable with the new program I have, and because it did not upload in their system properly causing some of the paragraphs to be jumbled.

Anyways, every state out there has FREE attractions, but they are not promoted as much as the paid attractions. I will give you some of the FREE ones offered that may interest you, but keep in mind that there is a small percentage of FREE attraction charge for parking, but the attraction itself is FREE. I will list some of Michigan’s FREE attractions that are of the popular variety, but there are well over 40 that I have identified.
