It makes you actually believe, that they love their jobs. Bartenders prepare drinks that always taste better than the ones I make at home. They are even helpful on what to order (they can even give you a taste of their very own MichiGIN).

        1.    Fulton Street Farmers Market


          Is there a better way to buy your groceries than getting it directly from farmers? The idea behind the Fulton Street Farmers Market it just that, from farm straight to your table and tummy. Sometimes the farmers will share a few tips on how to make your own garden produce better.

Don’t miss out on their honey crisp apples and baked good, they are just beyond tasty.

            You can probably find the freshest and tastiest pies and apple cider in Robinette’s Apple Haus & Winery. The friendly staff will keep you entertained while you take a sip on their Apple Cider tasting. The smells of the store are just amazing; they also offer tasty treats and delicious baked goods. The fresh apple juice and apple cider are worth a trip to the winery and oh don’t forget to get a box or two of their uniquely “delish” donuts.

            1.    Fish Ladder

              Back in the day, the fish ladder was a staple in the romantic destinations.Today, it offers activities for families too. It’s fun watching the river flow as fish jump up the ladder. When they say fish, they mean it; you can watch huge fishes come up the ladder or in the stream. With a recent remodel, the park is a great family destination to walk around and great spots for picnics too.
