Food Scene

The atmosphere of the old state hospital building is outstanding. Walk the old hallways and browse the shops at the Mercado while you wait for your table. Do a little light reading on the history of the buildings and find "Angles in the Architecture".

Amical is THE BEST. Excellent food and bar selection. They also have an awesome patio! I love sitting out there sipping champagne, eating olives and people watching!

OK. This is some of the best food I've had in Traverse City. The Chicken Benedict and the pancakes (yes, pancakes) will be something you think about long after you leave.

You should take a cruise out to Old Mission Peninsula. You can stop at Mari Vineyards or Bonobo winery, and make your way out to the Jolly Pumpkin. Its a comfortable place to fortify.

Parks & Nature

I have traveled the world over and the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore is still one of the most impressive, sacred and beautiful places I've experienced. You can hike the trails in Glen Haven https://www.nps.gov/slbe/planyourvisit/trailsleepingbearpt.htm, or Pyramid Point https://www.nps.gov/slbe/planyourvisit/trailpyramidpt.htm or you can relax on Empire beach for the day and body surf the waves. Please do not miss this majestic natural wonder!

Glen Haven shows a bit of the history of the area. The living quarters of turn of the century workers still stand, as do some of their outbuilding. There is also little ship museum. The beach here is cool. There is an excellent hike at the end of the dirt road too. Note: you are hiking in sand. It’s a workout. But the views are worth it!!

This is a must do. I worked here for over 10 years. I have a soft spot for hotel bars. This bar has a view. It also has a piano bar, Thursday-Saturday. Tom Kaufman will serenade you while you drink classic cocktails and eat delicious pizzas (get the Potato Pizza, or the Margarita Pizza).

Arts & Culture

This film festival is world class. I think it was year 6 that they celebrated Stanley Kubrick. It was all Kubrick films on original reels. All Kubrick panels. It was AMAZING. It gets better every year. A special treat.
