Great and interesting cocktails. Killer happy hour deals! And they often have live music even on off nights, but live music you can still have a conversation around, catch my drift? I don't love their food, but it's a staple cocktail/happy hour stop.

Great patio overlooking the marina and only about 5 minutes from the house. Laid back atmosphere with good food and cocktails and a pretty good selection of craft beers.

This is like getting carryout from your mom, with a Mediterranean flare. When I can't think of what to cook or where to go, I eat here or take away. Super casual cafe style dining and everything is home made. About 6 minute drive from the house. Great casual lunch place.

Need pizza? Go here. More of a carryout place, but you can post up and eat there. Right in the alley off State St. in the heart of downtown Traverse City.

Arts & Culture

All kinds of concerts and shows going on here. Some big names come through. It's about a 45 minute drive and you might score seeing someone big in a relatively small venue.

Parks & Nature

Must go. Must see. Any time of year, the overlooks and immense Lake Michigan are sites to behold. You never know just what type of blue you will experience when looking out over the lake.
