Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Michigan is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It is the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
Michigan's diverse natural beauty is largely unsung and unspoilt. Known as an industrial area, in fact this large state has some of the most breath-taking rural scenery in America, ranging from beaches and lakes to forests, mountains and islands. Michigan consists of two peninsulas, separated by the Straits of Mackinac that join Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The Mackinac Bridge crosses the Straits, but in Michigan you are never far from one of the Great Lakes, and the state is known for its many water sport activities. The more scarcely populated Upper Peninsula is heavily forested and mountainous in the west, with the Porcupine Mountains and the Huron Mountains of particular note.
One thing is certain, and that is that you'll need a reliable and efficient hire car to get you around. Alamo has depots at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Grand Rapids International Airport, Kalamazoo International Airport and Flint Bishop International Airport. So, wherever you choose to start your Michigan vacation, they'll be ready and waiting, with a fleet of up-to-date, comfortable vehicles at your disposal.
Detroit is home to the American auto industry, so the Henry Ford Museum is an essential visit for its peerless collection of Americana - not just automobile related, but a jaw-dropping selection of actual artefacts from all corners of American history. The Detroit Institute of the Arts and the Charles H Wright Museum of African American History are among the many other museums and galleries that make Detroit an unlikely cultural centre.
The Great Lakes Circle Tour
There are two major scenic driving tours around Michigan's Great Lakes, the Lake Michigan Circle Tour and the Lake Superior Circle Tour. The city of Muskegon on the shores of Lake Michigan looks out over 26 miles of sandy beaches, and the nearby state parks and historic sites are all well worth exploring. Michigan's largest amusement park, Michigan's Adventure, is also at your disposal, with more than 53 rides on offer, including the famous Thunderhawk Rollercoaster. From the shores of Lake Superior you'll want to catch a ferry to Isle Royale National Park to experience 200 square miles of forest, lakes and wildlife; nature at its purest.
There is so much more to Michigan than meets the eye, so it is just as well you've got a safe, reliable hire car in which to investigate it all. The Great Lake State is waiting for you to dive in!
