Petoskey

This former Hemingway haunt sits at the northern tip of lower Michigan on Little Traverse Bay, the hub of a region that includes a community college, five marinas, two airports, the resort areas of Bay View, Harbor Springs, Boyne City, Walloon Lake and many other small towns. Petoskey's vibe is enlightened, hip and historic; downtown's Victorian-era Gaslight District is fueled by great restaurants, boutiques, an amazing bookstore and magnificent local art, fostered by the energetic programming of the Crooked Tree Arts Center. For big-name acts, glitz and gaming, the sumptuous $140-million Odawa Casino Resort has it all.
