Where Locals Eat and Ski in Michigan

Laura Notorangelo

Not only does Michigan have wonderful summers, perfect sunsets, loads of beaches and great restaurants, but this midwestern destination is also magical in the wintertime. Petoskey, a city in Northern Michigan, averages over 122 inches of snow a year, which makes for perfect snow bunny conditions. Whether you like to ski, snowboard, skate, sled, or just enjoy a drink and admire the snow from the great indoors, there's plenty to do.
