When you are Up North make sure that you take advantage of all the gorgeous places that you can sit outside and eat lunch.
- Lavender Hill Farm
The Lavender Hill Farm can be found between Boyne City and Petoskey. It has 23 different varieties of lavender over 33 acres where you can lay down a blanket and enjoy some good company. You are allowed to bring your own food there and sit back and smell the lavender. There is also a gift shop, which has a bunch of cute lavender goodies, such as chapstick, candles, or you can pick some yourself!
- Pennsylvania Park
Located right in the center of downtown Petoskey, Pennsylvania Park has many tables to sit and Petoskey has many food options to choose from as well. With the luxury of all of the downtown shopping to choose from after you grab something to eat and relax in the fresh air.
- Petoskey Waterfront
Right past Downtown Petoskey, the Waterfront is right on the bay so, you can enjoy your food lakeside in peace. There are tables right on the marina, or you can put a blanket down in the grass right next to the Bear River.
