Food Scene
All-American breakfast and brunch fare. It's a popular place in town. Prices are low. Aesthetically, the place would be improved by some updating, but the food is good and it's close.

If you're looking for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free food that is healthy and delicious, this is a great restaurant! Non-healthy people like it too ;-) It's Mediterranean food with fresh-made cheesecakes and baklava for dessert. It's my all-time favorite restaurant within a 30 minute drive.

Decent Mexican food nearby. I haven't been personally, but I have friends who recommend it. It's attached to a grocery store, so I wouldn't recommend it for the ambiance, but the food is good if you're looking for Mexican.

This is a local favorite. They offer both vegetarian and meat options, and their barbecue veggie meat is made from scratch and is my personal favorite. I don't normally like sandwiches, but I make an exception for Baguette De France. There are many who grew up in this town and look forward to eating at here every time they come home to visit. It's been newly renovated. Great food, great location and great ambiance. They're open 10-10 most days.

They are best known for their pizza, beer, Philly sandwich and cajun chicken. A lot of people come here before wine tasting or to meet up with friends. As a vegetarian, I have been here once and enjoyed my meal, though I don't remember what I ordered.

They offer wood-fired pizza and nitrogen ice cream. If you've never had nitrogen ice cream, it's an experience you should have-it's fun to watch them make it right in front of you. I prefer the taste of it to all other kinds of ice cream, and my kids love this place. Pizza is great too. They have a game room in the back with ping pong, air hockey, shuffleboard, fooseball, a mini indoor soccer field for kids to get their energy out, a giant playhouse, and quarter machines with candy (your kids will thank you for bringing quarters). We've been here dozens of times, and 95% of the time, it's been excellent. Great for rainy days.

Amazing pizza, right by the beach. If you go during the summer, expect it to be packed. You will want to call ahead and have them hold your place in line, as the wait can be as much as 2 hours. Great view, great food, great service, great location.

Amazing, locally grown, organic, free range, gluten free, conscientiously sourced, healthy food. They serve brunch and are open 7am-3pm most days. Use the Yelp app to hold your place in line before you arrive. There is usually a wait if you go during peak times. My kids say they serve the best pancakes they've ever tasted and my husband says he could eat the corn beef hash every day of his life and die happy. It's a very cute artsy place with local artists selling their work (though don't take your kids into the art rooms as some of the art is a bit racy). There are two ways to get there from here - you'll want to drive through St. Joe rather than through Benton Harbor.

Vietnamese food with vegetarian options. Low key, great food.

Known for large portions, fair prices, creative options and excellent tasting breakfast food. If you're willing to drive and want breakfast food, I would pick this over Nikki's. Both the outside and inside need to be updated, but the food is highly recommended.

Drinks & Nightlife
As a non-drinking vegetarian, I am not their target audience, but if you like fish, beer, burgers and entertainment, you may love it! People rave about Tuesday taco night - big tacos for $2 or less. Decorations are well thought out and have a patriotic feel. Service is friendly and many of their customers feel at home there.

Entertainment & Activities
If you've never been in a salt cave before, it's worth the experience! It's so relaxing and is a unique experience you are unlikely to forget. It's very affordable as well. A recent reviewer said: "Absolutely amazing experience! I’m all about holistic treatments and different ways to help the body heal and release inflammation and I love Himalayan salt! This took my love of Himalayan salt to the next level! Relaxing, soothing, healing and I felt so amazing after the 45 min session"

If you want to watch a movie at a theater for cheap, this is the place!!! It costs my family of four $12 to see a matinee. Can't beat that. I believe during peak times it's only $6 a person. Not bad.

A much higher end experience than the theater in Niles, but also twice the price. Theater seats are completely individual and fully recline.

Great place for a Saturday afternoon walk. Beautifully kept trails next to the St. Joseph river. Very peaceful and beautiful, especially in the spring and fall. It does cost to get in.

Great place to go sledding in the winter! They have a 400 foot tubing hill and tons of single and double inflated inter-tubes. All you need to bring is your snow gear, a smile, and some money to get in ;-) They even make their own snow (as long as conditions are right). They also have cross country skiing, a warm game room and hot chocolate and snacks for purchase.

This is my family's favorite beach because there's so much to do there. You can climb the dunes (and jump off the back side), play in the water, rub clay all over yourself, and there's usually a kiddie wading area if you park in the first parking lot (there are three lots). Go down the beach and walk left until you run into an inlet that is shallow and safe for toddlers. Or if you go to the third parking lot, they have kayak rentals available. They also have concession stands and food trucks during peak summer times.

This is THE most popular beach in summer. I would NOT recommend going on a weekend in June or July, as it will be PACKED (unless you love big crowds). Within walking distance is a water fountain for kids to play in, two kid's discovery museums and great pizza.

The campus is beautifully maintained and it's a pleasant place to take a walk during the weekend or in the evenings. There are also hiking trails behind the pathfinder building (type "pathfinder building Andrews University) into google, and you will find a map. Many people park here to go on hikes.
