Southern Michigan is a loosely defined geographic area of the U.S. state of Michigan. Southern Michigan may be referred to as a sub-region or component area to other regions of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. It is an area of rolling farmland, indluding the Irish Hills. The region shares a state border with Indiana and Ohio.
Depending on the viewer's perspective, the area known as Southern Michigan can fall into three well defined and larger regions of the state:
- West Michigan can be used to describe the area surrounding Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, which share similarities with other cities in Michiana and on the Lake Michigan shore.
- Southeast Michigan includes Metro Detroit and outlying cities such as Ann Arbor, Adrian, and Jackson
