Started in 2015, Travel the Mitten is a travel blog started by two brothers dedicated to the great state of Michigan. Let’s face it, our great state of Michigan looks like a mitten. That is why the 26th state will always be known as the mitten state, along with other nicknames like Wolverine State and Great Lakes State. While other states share unique shapes to identify themselves, no other state allows its residents to quickly use their hand as a map.
Michigan’s state motto translates to “If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you”. We hope that when looking for travel reviews and the best our state has to offer, you will seek out Travel the Mitten.
