As much as I hate the winter cold, I love the history we have here in Michigan. We’re proud of our state and our country, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
From the fort on Mackinac Island to the many state parks, we love to stay authentic and true to our roots. In a small town in Metro-Detroit, one area is devoted to the Western life our country came across so many years ago.
Frontier Town stands as a reminder of the old Western cities long before cars and technology changed the game. With many different shops, including an old-fashioned general store and a small mall featuring local artists and craftsmen, it creates the feeling of nostalgia for simpler times.
For Mother’s Day last weekend, my family and I made a couple of different stops – the bakery, the candy shop, and the ice cream parlor. All of them were delicious, and we walked out with many different treats (including some chocolate-covered bacon & tasty zucchini bread). We then sat outside at a picnic table, eating our ice cream, and watching the goats play in a pen.
It was fun, relaxing, and an overall charming to be able to get outside and visit something unlike the stores and shops we see every day. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, I’d definitely recommend stopping by (and grabbing some Superman ice cream while you’re at it!).
