Michigan's many "Pure Michigan" destinations are featured in the newest edition of the state transportation map, now available at Travel Michigan Welcome Centers and Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) offices. The 2010 map features photos from the picturesque village of Leland, dog sledding in the Upper Peninsula, riding a dune buggy on Michigan beaches, enjoying one of the state's coastal lighthouses and exploring the Michigan Capitol in Lansing. Several new features on the map include more carpool lots (a new symbol added to the map in 2009), and updates to the state parks listing and Michigan laws. A Web-based version of the map also is available in PDF and Flash formats. There are many new city maps available online, including Gaylord and Petoskey, in addition to the 15 included on the map. About 1.5 million maps will be produced this year, at a cost of 12 cents per copy.
