Week Recap: Vacation + 4th of July!

This past week was our annual trip up north (northern Michigan). Every year we stay in the same resort, and have so much fun! Our trip consisted of biking, swimming, shopping , fireworks, and so much more!

The first day we went on a 10 mile bike ride around the Sleeping Bear Dunes. The bike trail was so beautiful! It was fairly easy other then a couple of big hills. My legs hurt so bad going up those hills! After the really long bike ride, we decided to go shopping. We went shopping at a cute beach town called Glen Arbor. Glen Arbor has a ton of cute little beach stores, and a Cherry Republic store!

For those who don't know, Cherry Republic is a store/restaurant/winery that sells all things cherry! You can buy cherry pop, cherry candy, cherry jam, etc. What's really cool about the Cherry Republic is that you can only find it in Michigan. All of their products and design of their stores center around the theme of northern Michigan(lakes, farms, woods, etc.)

My favorite part of going to the Cherry Republic is trying all of their samples. They always have a whole bunch of food out to sample, you could have a whole meal there! I also love their soda pop.  My favorite one is the Cherry Root Beer. They have so many choices to choose from!

On our trip we also went to Traverse City. The Cherry Festival was actually going on while we were there, so we walked around that for a little bit. After the festival we walked around all of the cute shops.


 For lunch we went to eat at some food trucks. The Little Fleet is a bar with food trucks right in front of it. They are all parked in this outdoor area right in front of the open bar. There were about eight different food trucks to choose from. I got a pork taco from the truck Roaming Harvest (it was delicious), but all the other truck's foods looked equally as good. I would defiantly recommend going there if you are ever in Traverse City!

For the rest of the trip we stayed at our resort. We biked, swam, played tennis, watched fireworks, played golf, and relaxed. It was so much fun! I can't wait to go next year!
