East of the Mississippi River, Michigan is the state with the largest total area, but it is best known for having the longest freshwater coastline of any state. Bound by four out of the five Great Lakes as well as Lake Saint Clair, the word Michigan is a French alliteration of a Native American word meaning "large water". A resident of Michigan is never further than six miles away from a natural water source, making it one of the most beautiful places to live in the country.
As of the 2010 Census, Michigan's population was estimated at 9,883,640, making it the only state to lose population in the period between 2000 and 2010. With an auto industry that was hard hit by the recent recession, Michigan has been heavily promoting itself as a tourism destination and business-friendly locale.
