This Michigan Town Has Been Named The Best Foodie Town In The Whole State

When I was thinking of what town it might be my first thought was one of Michigan's bigger cities such as Detroit, Grand Rapids, or Lansing.

Turns out it's none of those cities.

The food experts at Love Food named the best Foodie town in each state and this is what they had to say about Traverse City:

Straddling rural farmland and Michigan wine country on the shores of Lake Michigan, Traverse City is in a prime position to be unusually rich in good things to eat. In addition to the wineries, the area is saturated with great breweries. The Grand Traverse Pie Company takes advantage of the region’s bounty of tart cherries, while restaurants like Farm Club make the most of other local ingredients. Modern Bird, run by a husband and wife team who both previously cooked at Michelin-starred restaurants, has a small but perfectly formed menu and is one of the newest additions to the food scene.

 

I've always thought of Traverse City as just a place people go for wine tasting but now I know it has so many great food options as well.
