Today on my A-Z April Challenge Travels we are heading to the great state of Michigan. In 2009 my dear friend Mary, my daughter Kat and her dear friend Mandy all took a journey to Michigan. Each on of us got to choose somewhere in the state we wanted to see. Mary chose Frankenmuth, I chose Mackinaw Island, Kat chose Traverse City, and Mandy chose the new stadium at Michigan in Ann Arbor. Anything else we got to see was just icing on the cake. If you have never been to Michigan it is a must to put on your travel Bucket list. We ate at Rosie's Diner just outside of Traverse City. Guy Fieri featured it on Diner's Drive Ins and Dives. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great fun.
The food at the German restaurants was amazing. It was done family style. We visited several Cheese Hauses, and I bought Frank some Beer Kaza (sp). Let me tell you that it stinks! I ended up throwing it away somewhere in Kentucky because it smelled so bad in the car. Our big adventure of the trip was to Christmas hell. Actually it was Bronner's Christmas Store. We spent over seven hours here. I have never seen so many Christmas decorations. The chapel outside was my favorite part of Bronners. It was a replica of the chapel where Silent Night was first performed. All around the chapel are the words to Silent Night in every known language.
To Joey, With Love....WINNER!
