The Top State And Territory Tourist Locations: M

Updated on December 22, 2014

Every area has a prime tourist location. Do you know what the top tourist site is in your State or Territory?

The Frog has decided to go alphabetically through the States and Territories answering what the top tourist site is in each one. Several sources will be used. You may not agree with your area's pick. Use the comments section and tell us what you think it is.

You can see the first three hubs in this series at these links:

A-C

D-H

I-L

The goal is to give people ideas on something they can do with their family or alone. If you really consider all, you really do not have to travel very far to have a great vacation.

In most circumstances, I will attempt to link the site's website. I will also search for pictures if possible.

Ok, let's see what the top tourist sites are:

Acadia National Park, Maine:

Maine

Oh the beautiful landscape of the State of Maine. This Northeastern State is a great idea for that family vacation you have been dreaming of.

Where is the top tourist spot in Maine?

The consensus would have to go with Acadia National Park. The first national park East of the Mississippi River, this wonderful place has so much to offer. Go hiking, camping and see the wildlife.

Look at the map at the right and you can find how to get to Acadia National Park.

Maryland

One of the thirteen original colonies, Maryland may be a wonderful idea for a vacation. The top tourist location in Maryland is the historic Eastern Shore.

Visit some of these old towns with architecture that will give you the impression you may meet Patrick Henry or George Washington at any moment.

Towns on the Eastern Shore you will want to visit are:

  • Cambridge
  • Chesapeake City
  • Chestertown
  • Easton
  • Kent Island
  • Oxford
  • Rock Hall
  • Salisbury
  • St. Michaels
  • Tilghman Island

The map can guide you to each Eastern Shore town.


Massachusetts

Here is another one of those original thirteen colonies.

Massachusetts is a State that not a whole lot of people consider when planning a vacation.

Well, the top tourist place in this State is a baseball lover's delight. Fenway Park in Boston is the top destination. Go watch the Red Sox play baseball and see the Green Giant. It is a wall that is amazing. there are no other ballparks built like Fenway Park. It is one of a kind.

Michigan

Very far North in the Midwest United States, you can find the State of Michigan. It is located on the Great Lakes, namely Lake Michigan.

It is on Lake Michigan where you will find this State's top tourist destination.

Sleeping Bear Dunes is the prime visiting site in Michigan. Instead of being a National Park, it is a National Lakeshore. Explore and dream, you can do both at Sleeping Bear.

For your next vacation get away, try Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan.

Minnesota

Known as the land of 10,000 lakes, it will probably surprise you what the top tourist site is in Minnesota.

The top place is not a lake; it may have wildlife, but not the wildlife you expect. In Bloomington, Minnesota is Mall of America. It is the largest mall in the United States.

Yep, shopping is the choice of tourists going to Minnesota.

If shopping is a hobby of yours, Mall of America may be a great choice.

Mississippi

The State of Mississippi has some tourist attractions that are quite unlike what you will find in other places.

The top tourist attraction in Mississippi is in the town of Aberdeen and is called The Magnolias. This is a mansion that survived the Civil War. The area is lined with Magnolias, hence its name.

The Magnolias can be toured or you can use these place for weddings or other events.

Travel to Mississippi and see The Magnolias.

The Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri

Missouri

This is a State I am quite familiar with. I moved to Puerto Rico from Missouri to be with my lovely Lastheart two years ago.

So where do tourists frequent in Missouri?

It is a very easy one to guess at. The Gateway Arch is the top choice on the banks of the Mississippi River in St Louis.

Just recently Maggie and I were there. We didn't ride the tram to the top of this massive Arch, but we did take a few pictures. You can see it >>>

Montana

Montana is a beautiful State. The top tourist destination in Montana is Glacier National Park. High in the Montana mountains, you can see wildlife that you have never seen in the wild before.

This park offers an all around educational experience for both young and old.

A Montana vacation would be an excellent choice. Glacier National Park is the best pick in Montana.

Conclusion

This hub takes care of all the Ms in this series.

Some great vacation ideas are within. Share these hubs with those you know are trying to choose a location to visit.

Keep tuned for the next installment in this series.
