MichiGift: 12 Months Of Pure Michigan

I just received a complimentary copy of the 2011 Pure Michigan calendar and can highly recommend it as a gift for those folks who choke up over the award-winning Pure Michigan radio and television ads featuring the voice of actor Tim Allen, or anyone who has a 12″ x 24″ piece of wall space to fill.

The calendar features a dozen scenic shots throughout the state and the four seasons, with plenty of room for jotting notes.

As I turned the pages and traveled from the snowy wilderness of the Upper Peninsula to a sandy Great Lake beach and Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, I could almost hear Tim Allen’s soothing reading of the year 2011:
“Three hundred and sixty five days that are Pure Michigan. January 1, New Year’s Day…March 13, Daylight Saving begins…September 23, Autumnal Equinox.
Your trip begins at”

Better give a box of tissues with the calendar for those teary eyed Pure Michigan fans (and just maybe because the months seem to fly by faster each year).

NOTE: Find the calendar (which was printed in Battle Creek and is on sale for $13.45) and lots of other Michigan goodies at the Travel Michigan online Pure Michigan store; check out the 3 Ways 3 Days sale this weekend. 



  1. On behalf of the People of Wisconsin, we love the UP and want you to give it back!

  2. Sorry, you’ll just have to settle for having the Yooper Packer fans!
