I may complain from time to time but Michigan does have a lot to offer especially if you like the outdoors and boating. Michigan has 2242 miles of coastline on the great lakes, compare that to Florida that only has 1197 miles on the ocean and that's all at no wake speeds because of the manatees
If you head south you have Toledo with a few good restaurants and bars, Sandusky with cedar point one of the top rated amusement parks in the country, Kelly's island with the casino restaurant the offshore hangout, Put-In-Bay the #1 boating location in the country and maybe the world and probably another dozen or so bars and restaurants within a reasonable travel distance.
If you go north there are a few restaurants and bars on the Detroit river in both Canada and Michigan, south shore, pier 500, Duffy's and a few others I can't remember then you get into lake ST. Clair and I know there's a ton of stuff to do but i'm not familiar with the area so Ms PatriYacht would have to fill you in .
As far as the inland lakes go there aren't many in Michigan big enough for an offshore boat so the speed limits really aren't a problem and the great lakes have no limits once you get a couple of miles offshore.
Truthfully, i don't think were going to change your mind either way, if you have family and friends here and you can make a decent living working here than it's probably a good move.
