When should I plant tomatoes in Michigan?

Just so, when can I start planting in Michigan?
Many cool-season vegetables can handle planting times as early as the soil thaws and is workable, usually late March through early April in southern Michigan and three weeks later in the most northern parts.
Secondly, when can I put tomato plants outside? You don't want to be starting your tomato seeds more than six weeks before nighttime temperatures (either outdoors or in your greenhouse) are reliably above 57 °F (14 °C) although most varieties will tolerate temperatures a little cooler—note emphasis on 'tolerate!'
Keeping this in view, what are the best tomatoes to grow in Michigan?
Here are a few of the best varieties to try:
- Beefsteak: This super common hybrid tomato grows well in Michigan.
- Roma: Roma tomatoes are about the size of your fist and look oval.
- Grape and Cherry: These small tomatoes are shaped like the fruits they're named after and can be tangy or sweet.
