Northern Michigan Attractions: Back when Hemingway summered in the Petoskey area, when radio was king of entertainment and simply going to a movie was an occasion to dress up, there were few greater pleasures than just "going for a drive". Recapture the elegance and ease of this bygone era by taking a slow drive through the Tunnel of Trees, just north of Harbor Springs on M-119. Beautiful in any season, this legend of spooling asphalt trimmed in deep-blue vistas will soothe your soul and brighten your heart on a late summer evening.
Maintain that relaxed Northern Michigan feeling by heading to Roast and Toast Coffee and Cafe on Lake Street in Petoskey. Established in 1993 by Bob and Mary Keedy, Roast and Toast is a favorite of locals and visitors alike, winning over every visitor with their in-house roasted coffee, urban atmosphere and extensive menu. Look for Chucki Grooters, the cafe's main roaster whose coffee-know-how and deft hand with a frother got him voted Northern Michigan's best barista in Traverse, Northern Michigan's Magazine's 2012 Red Hot Best.
