Michigan is filled with amazing features, hidden gems, and many other things that make the state amazing. The best part is that you don't always have to go to one of the major cities to find them. Every city has something great to offer.
When it comes to planetariums, most people you ask just assume that the largest one would be located in a big metropolitan area. Even though you can find planetariums in cities like Detroit, Grand Rapids, and East Lansing, the largest one in the state is actually in a place you wouldn't expect.
