Last month I traveled up to northwest coast of Michigan for a four-day food & culture adventure through Traverse City, Charlevoix and Petoskey. Other than a quick business trip to Detroit, this was my first time exploring the Mitten State. Over the next few weeks I will be writing about some of the fantastic things to see, do, eat & drink in these regions— which, honestly, blew me away as a first-time traveler to this area.
For now, here’s a look as some of the most beautiful sights from my trip.
