Quincy Mine Tour in Hancock Michigan

Just north of Hancock, Michigan in the heart of the Keweenaw Peninsula is the Quincy Mine. It’s been closed over 70 years, but tours are available.

Colonial Michilimackinac is the last exit before Mackinaw Bridge and is packed with history and photo opportunities. It was the first stop on our 2017 Michigan Tour of Places we’ve always said we wanted to checkout or did and can’t remember. I think you could safely call it the 2017 Michigan Middle Age Tour

Dark Alley Cycle Shop Open House

On May 13, The Dark Alley Cycle Shop in Marshall, Michigan threw an open house to show off the revamped shop with great beer, food, and music. We stopped by and interviewed Cabe and Lance. They shared a bit more about their vision for the shop, what sets them apart from other cycle shops, and if they anticipate partnering with a dealership. (That got them a bit sidetracked!)
