The state of Michigan, along with the Great Lakes, has been recreated in Animal Crossing: New Horizons along with a travel brochure for the island.
An Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has turned their island into the state of Michigan and has even created a brochure for tourists who visit the island. The developers of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have been updating the game with new features and items here since its release last year. Recently a new tool called Island Tour Creator gives players the ability to make custom tourism videos and posters for their islands. Island Tour Creator is a website designed for smartphones where people can upload their screenshots and videos from Animal Crossing: New Horizons to make posters and trailers for their island to entice others to come and visit.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is mostly a single-player game, but it has amassed a large online community. The creativity that the Animal Crossing series brings out in its players shines even brighter in New Horizons due to the ease of sharing screenshots, videos, custom items. Many online share their dream addresses, allowing others to visit their islands. Sharing ideas with other players sparks more creativity in the community.
Reddit user maybeiam-maybeimnot posted a series of photos in the Animal Crossing subreddit showing the attractions the island of Pure Michigan has to offer for visitors. Whether it be camping in the northern Lower Peninsula, seeing the waterfalls at the Tahquamenon Falls, fishing at Lake Superior, Pure Michigan has a lot for villagers to do on their visits. Those venturing to Pure Michigan can even explore the forests of the Canadian wilderness if they are daring enough.
Pure Michigan must have taken some painstaking patience in order to create. The terraforming work on the map of the island shows a detailed look at the Great Lakes and the land surrounding them. The Reddit post has people in the comments talking about their homesickness from being away from their native state. Others asked which villagers decided to emigrate to Ontario. Spoiler alert: it was Erik and Beau.
Michigan, the Great Lakes, and the land surrounding them are shaped in a way that recreating them in Animal Crossing: New Horizons would require a lot of creativity. Creating a more rectangular state like Kansas or Colorado would be more up the ally of terraforming beginners compared to the complexity of mayberiam-maybeimnot’s island. The Animal Crossing Island Tour Creator was meant for players to attract tourists to in-game islands. The developers probably didn’t expect players to model their islands after real-world locations.
