At the 45th Parallel, halfway between the equator and the North Pole, Michigan has a sweet spot that is kissed by the waves of the largest lake totally within U.S. borders. It’s a tart spot, too. This spot, in Michigan’s northwest Lower Peninsula, is the world’s Cherry Capital.
Michigan’s Lower Peninsula is shaped like a hand so that it can hold a Coney dog properly. There can be no other explanation. This is the epicenter of the Coney nation.
