Michigan had one of the most brutal winters it has ever seen, and unfortunately its impacts are still lingering.  As people begin to plan their summer travels, there may be some residual effects from this winter.

Steve Yencich, president and CEO of the Michigan Lodging and Tourism Association gives Current State a look into the Michigan summer tourism season. He says that while waters may be cold, tourists still flock to the Great Lakes as temperatures rise.
