Who knows Michigan better than a Michigander? With that thought, we asked the Pure Michigan Facebook and Twitter faithful to pick a place in Michigan and name one thing they HAVE to do when there. Responses were fairly evenly divided between eating and nature, with frequent emphasis on…potatoes.
So without further ado, here’s a sampling of the must-dos across both peninsulas. Thanks to all who commented and submitted!
Where to Eat
Troy Rowley – Grand Haven: MUST have Pronto Pup!
Cindy Hill Freeman – Copper Harbor: We have to have dinner at Harbor Haus. I order the best fresh whitefish ever! Enjoy the great view of Lake Superior anywhere in the restaurant and the wonderful German food.
Michael T. Szczepanski – Mackinaw City: Have Scalawags whitefish and chips, with awesome hushpuppies!
Where to Nature
Shirley Burnett-Moore – St. Clair: Go stand or sit by the river. It speaks to the soul and spirit.
Vicki Pierce Schmucker – Adrian: Visit the historic Croswell Opera House in December to see White Christmas!
Where to Potato
Tina Lambert – Posen, for the Posen Potato Festival. Can you say Polka?!
Kristel Johnson – Crystal Falls: Don’t forget to stop by Johnsons Potato Farm and pick up some fresh spuds!
