As Memorial Day rolls past (hopefully remembering why the holiday exists), children everywhere are struggling to concentrate on school. And kids aren’t the only one with their heads in the clouds. There are days that I’m sure the only way to pay attention to work is to close the blinds. And if I think hard enough, I can actually smell sunscreen, taste watermelon and see Petoskey Stones at...Read More
May in northern Michigan is such a beautiful time of year with buds popping out and the grass greening in. Our hiking and biking trails are nearly clear of snow and soon we’ll have mushrooms and trillium coming up. Along with all that, May is also Wine Month in Michigan and we are making the most of this in the Petoskey Area!
What’s up with the wineries?Read More
My friends sometimes share their stories of spring break vacations and occasionally, I’ll admit, I’m jealous. By April I’m ready for some warmer temps. But honestly, I hate the crowds that pack Florida beaches this time of year.

Winter arrived in the Petoskey Area on a puff of cold air and the promise of one of the area’s best amenities – snow. What a gift, as all three of our ski areas – Boyne Highlands, Nub’s Nob and Boyne Mountain – opened not only in time for Thanksgiving, but the week before! And as always when the blanket of white erased autumn hues, I started to think about the holidays and gift giving.Read More
Now that November is here, we are starting to see a few snow flurries in the northern Michigan forecast. Unlike some towns, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Boyne Falls, Alanson and Bay Harbor embrace the coming of snow and the new season. And with good reason – we’re in the middle of three of the best skiing and snowboarding areas in the Midwest: Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands and Nub’s Nob.
If you’ve been to Boyne City, Michigan, you’ll totally understand what I’m talking about here. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to enjoy this little town I suggest you make time!Read More
