There were lots of unique shops and a couple of restaurants. I found a couple of things I couldn't live without. Worth a visit. There is also a botanical garden close by that has a very nice hiking trail behind the garden. The trail is wide and well groomed but a little challenging.

Old mental hospital has been transformed into one of largest restoration projects in Michigan, now a nice mixed use development of shops, restaurants, and living accommodations. Worth a visit, take the tour.

This was a tour you won’t forget. The tour guide had a connection to the property and it showed. He was very knowledgeable about the asylum and it’s restoration efforts. It was two hours well spent.
