Amazing Mexican food on Front St. in the middle of downtown. Mama Lu's is a small place, and it can be hard to get a table. Their tacos are amazing and their street corn is the talk of the town!

Family-friendly activities
Pirate's Cove is a pirate-themed adventure park located about 10 minutes drive east of downtown TC. This is the original location of what is now a nationwide chain of more than 20 parks. It features mini golf, two go-cart tracks (one for big kids and grown ups, the other for kids 5 and up), a high ropes course and bumper boats. We have taken our two small kids here on several occasions and they loved every minute. One small word of warning - be prepared for a leisurely-paced round of mini golf if you play on weekends or during peak vacation seasons, as it gets very crowded!

The lower Platte River is a serene, beautiful spot that is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. Riverside Canoe Trips is located about 40 minutes drive from the center of TC, and offers canoe and kayak rental. A one way trip down the Platte to the outlet at Lake Michigan takes about 3-4 hours and is a great way to spend half a day.

This park is located at the northern tip of Old Mission Peninsula and features the historic Mission Point Light, a museum, and walking trails. It is a great place for a short hike, to learn some history of the Great Lakes, and to enjoy the tranquil blue waters of Grand Traverse Bay.
