Travel Tips for Traverse City

Hull Park

by ciaobellamici

The Boardman Lake Trail has been expanded to include a bridge over the Boardman River connecting the East side of the Lake to the West. The bridge, completed in October of 08, is a tribute to a community working together to combine beauty with function.

Businesses in The Village at Grand Traverse

by deecat


In this tip, I plan to give a small overview of some of the businesses that have sprung up in the surrounding buildings on the Village at Grand Traverse Commons. These are three that Mickey and I found quite interesting.

1. Pleasanton Bakery: This small bakery is located at 812 Cotton View Drive; (231) 941-1964

This was the mental asylum's former fire station; it is now the location of a unique bakery. The owners, Gerard Grabowsk and Jan Shireman use a wood-fired brick oven to bake hand-shaped loaves of bread made with organic Michigan grains and natural leavening agents. Now, this oven is enormous and uses large amounts of wood. Besides breads, they also make cookies in this oven. [Mickey bought a cookie, and we shared it]. The textured breads include Parmesan Olive Herb, Cranberry Pecan, Sesame Whole Wheat, and Village Rye. Yum. We would have bought some but we had no way to keep it.

2. Underground Cheese Company: This small cheesecake company is located at 1333 Yellow Drive, Traverse City, Michigan. (231) 929-4418

This cheesecake emporium occupies two brick buildings at the Grand Traverse Commons [ one is for baking and another is for sales; this one pictures is for sales]. They produce 42 different plavors of cheesecake, nine cake varieties, five kinds of brownies, and their famed "cheesecake on a stick". Salads, sandwiches and drinks are also served.
Be sure to see tip under restaurants, too

3. Left Foot Charley [Urban Winery] is located at 806 Red Drive, Traverse City. (231) 995-0500.

This building is located in the former laundry and is shared with Higher Grounds..see tip under restaurants. The owner/winemaker is Bryan Ulbrich purchases the grapes for his winery from growers on nearby Old Mission Peninsula. The wines are made here in "the old laundry building". There is a tasting room for sampling Rieslings, Pinot Grigios, and other whites.

I hope that from these descriptions, you are better able to understand the unique nature of this "Commons" renovation. We certainly enjoyed the half day that we spent exploring the grounds, buildings, and shops.
