Petoskey — Pure Michigan

A December Winter Eve in Northern Michigan's Hidden Gem

A December Winter Eve in Northern Michigan’s Hidden Gem

It’s a tradition that many Michiganders share; going “Up North”, as close or far as your family travels, to experience the wonders of our lakes is just a part of life. We know the mitten like the back of our left hands but have we seen it all???

If you haven’t been we highly recommend. Go in summer, go in winter, just go! And go often. Petoskey is Pure Michigan at it’s finest. And while you are there, here’s a list of our favorite eats:


1. American Spoon — Family owned and operated since 1982, they have the best gelato outside of Italy. Try the Burnt Caramel, you’ll thank us! And go in hungry enough to sample all of their goodies, cakes, crumbles, and preserves because everything is out for tasting.

2. Chandler’s — This 2014 Travelers’ Choice Winner is the preferred destination of locals and tourists. If you go in Winter (and we highly recommend you do) sit at the bar and have Christian make you his signature coffee drink– you won’t be disappointed, it is the most involved drink we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Also, the Lentil soup is a MUST… crushed lentils, cumin, and goat cheese crostini. Its’s worth all $10.00. And the SUSHI… so good you would swear you’re in San Fran…

3. City Park Grill — this scratch kitchen has the best, most fresh, perfectly prepared white fish– EVER!! Nuff said 🙂
