Day Trip to Rockland, Michigan

If you need a break from the beauty of the Porcupine Mountains, the waterfalls in Pauling and have explored the great stuff in Ontonagon, a day trip to Rockland, Michigan is just the thing.

The Rockland General Store is the place for an icecream break, supplies and directions. One thing you don't want to miss is the Spice Vault. Inside the Depot is an old walk-in vault where the shop offers rare and unusual herbs and spices from around the world. Enjoy this most unusual shop.

Old Victoria is just down the road, one of my favorite ghost towns.  The Rockland Historical Museum can give you all the information you need on local history.

Another unique spot is Henry's Never Inn.  My opinion is they have the best pasty recipe in all of the upper peninsula.  It is worth stopping just to see the old mahogany bar.
