Negaunee Things to Do

    The best thing to do in winter (September - March) is to go snowmobiling. Lakes are all frozen, and there are great trails prepared!

    Another popular tavern in downtown Negaunee is Rookies. It's more of a "sports bar" than Tino's, but it also features local bands on weekend nights, and a small dance-floor. This is a good place to eavesdrop on the local "yooper" accent.

    Dress Code: Carhartts and jeans

    Downtown Negaunee has more drinking establishments than any other kind of business. "Tino's" is right next to the Vista, and I go there occasionally after a performance at the theatre. It's pretty much what you'd expect - but it's true that drinks are quite cheap.

    Dress Code: nothing fancy - this is negaunee

    Favorite thing: Those are leaves of the Acanthus bush, a universal feature of the Corinthian Order of Architecture.

    In the summer of 2005, Louie, one of my colleagues in the History Department thought seriously about buying the Negaunee Bank Building and converting it into his residence. Wouldn't it be neat to have your own private bankvaults! I was able to tour the building with Louie - nice to see that the lobby is still in pretty good shape, even though it would take a lot of renovation to make the place habitable.

    Favorite thing: Long since closed as a bank, it's currently the local headquarters for the United Steelworkers of America, who represent many of the employees at the Empire and Tilden mines. Working at the mines is considered a "good job" locally - well-paid, good benefits, marred by occasional (unpredictable) lay-offs and the medium or long-term reality that the mines will eventually close permanently.
