Dinner

What We Love: Drinking Spritz cocktails in the front garden, the fresh Italian pastas made with locally sourced ingredients. The finishing touches that you make you feel like you’re really on the Italian Riviera. I also love how they play Italian language lessons in the restrooms!

Exercise & Wellness

We love the beautiful and spacious studio. We love the calming presence of all of the teachers and their ability to leave you feeling totally refreshed after class. Aromatherapy vinyasa, yin, and beach yoga are our favorite classes. Yoga Life also provides mats and equipment so if you don’t have your gear with you for your trip no need to worry (check with the studio for the latest on COVID-19 protocols)

Wineries

What We Love: We love Hickory Creek as its a smaller and relatively quite winery that has a homestead feel about it. The grounds and outdoor patio area are great and never as crowded as some of the other wineries in the area. We’ve also been able to do tailgate wine tasting out of the back of our Jeep! Our dogs love joining us for a weekend picnic of wines at Hickory Creek. We also love the European varieties of wine made with the Michigan grapes.

What We Love: The amazing vineyard and winery grounds that you can explore while enjoying the Round Barn wines. The round barn where the tastings are done is beautiful. Round Barn seems to have live music almost every weekend all summer long, there is a buzz in the air with an abundance of people visiting but plenty of room to spread out. You can bring your own picnic gear as well.

Breweries

What We Love: Sitting in the front patio area with friends and our dogs enjoying the latest seasonal brews from Watermark. There is no kitchen onsite which makes this brewery particularly dog friendly. We also like the food truck options that they have out front on most weekends. There are also plenty of local events that are hosted out of Watermark such as beer and yoga, and group cycling rides that end at the brewery on a Thursday evening.
