Cost of living

Michigan is in the Midwest region of the United States. This region consists of 12 states near the Great Lakes, a system of five freshwater lakes. The Midwest region is known for its agriculture, industry, health care and, increasingly, education. This area is an affordable place to live, work and raise a family.
