Mitten state offerings

July 10, 2009

I recently added the word “Michigan” to my masthead. So no longer am I just “Mom Meets Baby,” I’m now “Michigan Mom Meets Baby.” I am one of this state’s biggest fans, and if ever Michigan needed a fourth quarter comeback, now’s the time! I want to help promote this great state, so from time to time, I’ll be posting about my favorite Michigan destinations, Michigan-based businesses and the like.

Visiting Bay View is like taking a step back in time. The 440 cottages that make up this community vary from impressively big and beautfiul to tiny and utterly charming. Many cottages are available for rent, and the beautifully restored Terrace Inn (the B&B where we stayed), sits in the middle of it all with great food and even greater ambiance. Concerts, theatrical performances and other free and open-to-the-public events abound in summer months, and Bay View residents and visitors have access to a private beach on Little Traverse Bay.

If you’ve got a favorite Michigan destination you’d like to share, post it in the comments!
