They have a state park in town or KOA just south. July 4th weekend big cherry fest. Plenty to do and see, great downtown area.

Best Home Made Ice Cream

MOOmers Homemade Ice Cream - Just a Little Taste of Country

Excellent homemade ice cream, not to be missed. We also love the State Park there even though you have to go across the pedestrian bridge to reach the beach. Downtown you can kayak/canoe the canals to go shopping too. The light houses and wineries in the area are great also. A ton to do in the area.

BUT DON'T MISS THE ICE CREAM!!!!!

Funny story about the cherry festival. We were up in Traverse City site seeing when we saw a man mowing grass in a cherry tree orchard. He told us about the cherry festival but also told us they had to bring the cherries in from California because the cherries in Traverse City are not ripe until August/September.

We have a local Culvers. Eat lunch there at least once a week. Only do the custard once a month otherwise I would have to trade to a bigger truck!!

Thanks for the reply's, keep them coming making a list.

Oh my, I have a heartfelt fondness for Holsteins!! Spent many an hour washing udders on my uncle's dairy farm as a kid. As well as bottle feeding the calves (best part).

I also remember they use to have a place in Odessa called the "Ice Cream Factory". Home made ice cream, one of the first back in the 60's and 70's. Wish I could go back to my child hood from time to time. Maybe a visit to MOOmers will do it!

Thanks again.

Used the KOA as our home base visiting the area last year, must hit the Traverse City Pie Company, and Cherry Republic also. Sleeping Bear Dunes and Fishtown in Glen Arbor, were on the list also with lunch at the Cheese Shanty (cash Only). I would do that trip again, wonderful area.
