Sights around Bellaire, MI.

                                    Thursday 5/29/2014

On our last day in Bellaire, we drove to the downtown area to check out what the town had. We heard there was another B&B so we drove to the area that we were told it was located.
A long tree line drive up to the B&B.
Nice big front porch to relax and read a book on a beautiful summer day!
A covered porch leads to the rest of the B&B behind the main home.
The B&B is just a few blocks from downtown Bellaire. Each Bellaire banner had a different business name on the bottom of it. Bellaire has a population of just a little over 1,000 people.

We heard that" Shorts " was a new business that had recently come to town and has brought in a lot of new jobs. The older generation of the city council fought Short's coming to the downtown. Our realtor said the younger town members are happy with the vitality that it has brought to the downtown area.
We decided to come for dinner since who knows this could be our hometown some day. This has to be the strangest looking menu I have ever seen.
This was the list of different beers that the brewery makes.

I asked for a sample of the Black Licorice Lager,
and a sample of The Magician. I didn't like either. Both were way too heavy. Joe tried a peach beer. It was better but still to strong for me. Joe order a full size glass of the peach beer and I decided to forgo any.
I ordered the Puerto Rican Power for dinner, and Joe ordered the Old Man Thunder.
Mine was good,
but Joe's was awesome. Next time I am getting what he got!

A live band was getting ready to play as we were leaving. There are several other restaurants downtown, as well as a few shops and an ice cream parlor.
On the way back to our campground we took a side road up  Shanty Road. We heard this was another area that brings lots of tourists to town.
The Legend Golf Course is up the hill in the Shanty Village area. There are 5 to 6 golf courses located in or near Bellaire.
It looks like a real challenging course.
The Lakeview Hotel is in the Shanty Village where most people stay at in the winter for the ski resort.
