Six women got together for happy hour, cocktails and dinner. The Orchid Mule was wonderful. I always have to have the mushroom bisque which never disappoints! I had the Thai Lettuce wraps which are tasty but quite spicy! All in all we had a great time! More

Discover Northern Michigan

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a heavily forested region rich in game. This area features plenty of outdoor activities and a short but produce-rich summer season. Multiple wineries dot Northern Michigan, offering tastings and dining options paired with the intense and fruity wines made from short-season grapes. Freshwater fish, both cooked and smoked, are abundant and prepared to perfection. Fans of craft beer will enjoy both the beverages and the views of the surrounding lakes in the gorgeous country north of Lake Michigan. If the chill is hard to shake, you can warm things up in Marquette with a Cajun dinner. Be sure to save room for dessert. The Upper Peninsula is rich with wild berries, and you can't leave without trying some pie!
