It all starts with...a view of the Bay, of course! What follows are the little moments that make up our days, or the big events that wow us without even being planned! All said and done, all of these things combined make us grateful to be living in this pretty great place known as Traverse City.

Every morning I look forward to opening my package of tea for a very simple reason; to read the quote on the little slip of white paper at the end of the tea bag.  Much like cracking a fortune cookie in half to find out what potentially lies ahead in my future, this simple act of daily awareness often has an impact on how I perceive the day ahead of me. 

We have the wine, the beer, the distilled spirits and the food, but do we also have the coffee? Often overlooked, Traverse City’s coffee culture is alive within the city. Whether it’s the first cup of the day or that afternoon latte, your caffeine cravings will be satisfied.
