I'm starting to see more of them pop up over time especially along I-465. Anyone notice this? It seems that our neighbor to north must be hurting for visitors. It's interesting when ever I'm up there you don't see much about Indiana.

lol Michigan is a dying state years of ignoring the problems and brushing it off in Michigan have decayed it to sadness.
However Rick Snyder is a promising governor and he is starting to fix Michigan.
Especially the Business Tax system which was reformed and only applies to corporations now instead of all businesses which would hurt small businesses.
Hence why Michigan for years had the highest unemployment rate in the nation.
Michigan wised up though and brought in someone new to fix the state.
Next will be Illinois Pat Quinn is destroying it now will someone come along and clean up the mess?
Well see only time can tell.
This is an interesting cycle though and it seems to be happening in alot of states.
Also i will add with the downward economy tourism is lower however since the economy is picking up tourism will too so i guess Michigan is trying to get a *head start*

"Pure Michigan" is the official tourism campaign for the State of Michigan. Maybe people from greater Indy don't visit Michigan as much as they'd expect?

I think it's great for both areas. Michigan is probably the most underrated state in terms of natural beauty.

ya i agree.
I do like going along Lake Michigan i would never go to Michigan if it there was no Lake Michigan.
Its the perfect Ocean Substitute for many reasons.
1 you have the waves like an Ocean
2 you don't have that ocean smell but you have a nice breeze
3rd no sharks or wild crazy human killing fish like in the ocean
4th no risk of hurricanes or tsunamis to spoil your vacation
5th BIG ass dunes at the Indiana dunes national lakeshore talk about exercise
6th big cities like Chicago/Milwaukee/Greenbay/NWI give that city built on a lake feel.
7th you can DRINK the water!
need i say more?

Michigan has been advertising for years via television, what's a billboard. It's a beautiful state especially in the U P. The Big 2 are now starting to make a nice comeback and I say Big 2 since Chrysler is now owned by Fiat (not American). Wondering how long they can keep it up. Americans are buying more cars but I get the feeling that it's going to once again come to a screeching halt very soon. Other than that, it's a beautiful state, a state many people do not know about outside of the Detroit CMSA which includes Lansing, Flint and Ann Arbor. It's a big state.

Well the average vehicle age in America is 10 years.
Gotta replace them eventually.

The Pure Michigan campaign has been around for a long time.

As someone who spent many a summer weekend in that lovely state, I say bring on the advertisements in our state.

This is very true. I have been in Michigan for 11 years and the scenery for the most part is breathtaking in certain spots. However, job prospects will take forever to pick back up no matter what field it is in so I want to take my chances with Indiana. I finally got my husband to agree with this, since he was born and raised in Michigan. He probably would not want to move any farther away anyhow.

Michigan is a beautiful state. I have loved every visit. Why wouldn't (why do they need to) they advertise here? Cheers to Michigan, our awesome neighbor to the north!
