Mealtime lately has lost its spark. Whether it’s the struggle of coming up with new ideas or just being uninspired, falling back into the default 5 meals day in and day out, has left our plates just a little less joyful.

Fortunately a trip to the farmers market or local U-pick may be all that’s needed to jog your noggin into gear. Our latest trip yielded this magnificent purple cauliflower. I named it Beatrice.

Beer-illiant Brewery Tour

Visiting breweries is a reason to travel, and Michigan harbors more than 150 craft breweries and counting. Nestled among Southwest Michigan's wineries, sand dunes, and hoppin' towns are this Lake Michigan-hugging region's contributions to the Great Beer State. Arm yourself with this itinerary and find your perfect pint.

While you can certainly do this tour a day-at-a-time, it's a lot more fun to pitch camp at one of these locally owned or national chain lodgings in Benton Harbor, St. Joseph or Stevensville. Most offer a complimentary breakfast and a solid launching pad to hit up some nearby breweries over an extended stay.

Want a designated driver? No problem! Check out Southwest Michigan's transportation services to ensure you can have your beer and drink it too before safely turning in for the night.
