A Picnic in the Park

July 1, 2020

A picnic in the park is a great way to spend your lunch break or an evening off of work.

Petoskey’s Downtown is such a beautiful and unique place. There are wonderful locally-owned boutiques and gift shops for shopping, salons with amazing talent, great coffee shops and restaurants with top-notch food and service, and a large grassy area called Pennsylvania Park.

Pennsylvania Park is my favorite spot to enjoy a picnic. There are park benches, a gazebo, plenty of picnic tables to enjoy, and a large grassy area where you can throw down a blanket and grab a lunch to-go from one of your favorite restaurants.

Petoskey Pretzel Co.: Petoskey Pretzel has the best fresh-baked pretzels in a variety of flavors and creations.

The Backlot: The Backlot in Petoskey has several food trucks options like Happy’s Tacos, Mim’s Mobile Grill, Cheese & Co., and more.

If you’ve forgotten your picnic needs like blankets, hand sanitizer, and masks, stop into Grandpa Shorter’s.
