Excellent place to dine in or out. Breakfast is to die for. Get there early as they don't take reservations and there is a wait.

One of the finest restaurants in Traverse City. Make reservations LONG before you plan to arrive. Menu is always changing. This is a definite must if you are a true foodie.

Well worth the gorgeous drive out on Old Mission Peninsula. Wonderful raw bar, if you are into that sort of thing. the Boathouse is a local favorite for special occassions.

A very easy walk from my house. The museum, located on NMC campus, has a rotating collection of art and sculpture, one of the largest Alaskan Inuit displays and even a childrens area. Don't forget to check out their gift shop. The auditorium offers concerts duing the winter months.

This transformed historic train weigh station that was once occupied by a cherry warehouse in the 1800’s, is now home to the Parlor. Crafted cocktails with a prohibition era feel. You most likely will find music on Friday and Saturday night. The food is good, too!

Visit the first distillery in the state of Michigan. Grand Traverse Distillery has been distilling vodka, gin, rum, whiskey & bourbon since 2006. The tasting room is located right in the heart of downtown Traverse City. Or you can tour the actual distillery, located south of town, off of 3 Mile Rd.

City/town information

About a 45 minute drive is a great village, Leland, also known as Fishtown. The shantys along the rivers edge are now fun boutiques. Amazing views of both North and South Manitou Islands.

This place is full of history. Formerly a state psychiactric hospital, it has been restored into a bustling retail, office and condo space. Tours are available, which includes the tunnels! There are three great restaurant; Trattoria Stella, Pepeneros and Red Spire. Also located in and around Building 50 is Cuppa Joe, Pleasanton Bakery, Earthen Ales, Left Food Charlies Winery, Higher Grounds coffee roasting and Spanglish, just to name a few. Best of all is the 100 acres of hiking behind the buildings. Visit the Hippie Tree and climb up to the highest hill for a stunning view of East and West Bays. Hard to believe we have this available right in the neighborhood!

Breakfast

This place is iconic. As their name says, they are known for their omelettes. The cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls are good, too! There are two locations, downtown on Cass Ave. and just around the corner on Front Street, in the plaza across from the Civic Center

Old time diner serving up great food, at a great price. I love their retro seating and artwork on the walls.
