Outdoor Activities
Weko Beach ($10 parking fee or $50 annual pass) is about 1.5 miles away. Pet-friendly at the south end of the beach (the boardwalk will lead you there), which tends to be a lot less crowded anyway. Lot can be full by noon, but folks start to leave around 4pm. Be sure to squeeze in at least one sunset.

Hybrid bakery, Sicilian and Neapolitan-style pizza. Fresh ingredients, simple menu, great execution. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the busy season, but no table-service dining, just a few patio tables outside. Word on the street is their gluten-free pizza is fantastic.

Old-school American fine-ish dining. Stuff like Oysters Rockefeller, steaks and chops, and crab legs and local seafood is on the menu. They aren’t rewriting culinary history here, but everything is delicious, fresh, and cooked EXACTLY like you’d expect it to be in a classic upscale restaurant.

City/town information
FOR VEGETARIANS: Explore the restaurants in Berrien Springs. The town is a Seventh Day Adventist enclave (a Christian denomination known for, among other things, staunch vegetarianism), so nearly every restaurant in town is either completely vegetarian or caters to vegetarians with no problem. For example, a great sandwich option is Baguette de France (there is also a St. Joseph location), a quick pick-up operation with a ton of inventive vegetarian/vegan choices.

Grocery Stores and Local Markets
Super cute market with a ton of local, seasonal produce and a well-stocked gourmet-ish grocery store. If you need any specialty ingredients, this is the place to look. Nice selection of local beer and wine. Right behind Greenbush Brewing. Can be busy on the weekends.

Local, bare-bones chain about a mile from the Ranch. Use this place for basics. They ain’t gonna have organic stuff. The best thing about this place is the Rite-Aid drugstore it shares a parking lot with.

CLOSES ON FRIDAY EVENINGS AT SUNDOWN, CLOSED ON SATURDAYS. A large, wonderful ALL VEGETARIAN grocery store catering to the town’s sizeable Seventh Day Adventists community. Adjacent to the grocery store is De Café 31. IT’S A VEGETARIAN DELI. So good, a favorite lunch stop, especially if we’re shopping at Apple Valley.
