Before making a trip out to Northville Michigan, read this blog in its entirety to fill your agenda with the most amazing things Northville has to offer.
As I mentioned, I want to breakdown a few things you need to add to your agenda as you spend a day or so in Northville. Before I jump into it, I want to share a link HERE of what’s happening in Northville Michigan so you never miss out on anything!
Northville is a little historic town with a population of 6,000 people, and it was incorporated in 1867. My favorite thing to do downtown is just walk around honestly, as it just happens to be where my office is located. Conveniently placed across the street from a Starbucks and right next to an awesome breakfast spot called the Early Bird. The homes are historic, but redone beautifully, as their old charm and amazing detail were restored instead of replaced. Northville has this Victorian heritage about it, as many of the homes are a Queen Ann style, so it’s very appealing on the eyes and not just another cookie-cutter community that you see today. I promise you don’t have to be a real estate professional to drool over the details. These features include: front facing gables, round, square or polygonal towers, overhanging eaves, a second story porch or balcony, classical columns, bay windows, monumental chimneys and of course some spindle work as well. Don’t take my word for it, take a drive through some of the neighborhoods and appreciate the fine details.
And while you’re walking around, it brings me to my next point, and that’s strolling through Maybury State Park. Maybury State park is located in Northville Twp, and it covers 944 acres and is full of rolling hills, dense mature forests, and open meadows. Since the nearby cities are densely populated, it’s nice to take a step away from the city life and take some time horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing, picnicking, or cross country skiing. The nearby Maybury Farm offers different educational programs, corn mazes, hayrides, and some farming demonstrations if that’s an area of interest.
If you’ve spent a second in Northville Michigan, you’d know that the city appreciates some fine art. Just off of Center Street in downtown Northville, there’s about 5 art galleries that I can think of: Northville Art House, which actually teaches art, Fineartfiber, Dancing Eye Gallery, The Northville Gallery, and McGuires Fine Art Gallery which has recently been put up for sale. And not only is it just art work, there’s also the art of music with the Northville Center For Music, and Broughton Music and Art Center, along with the Tipping Point Theater. If you want to make the most of your visit to experience the fine art of Northville, make a point to stop by the third weekend of June, when the Arts and Acts Festival is held to showcase unique creations by crafters not only in Michigan but the entire country too. Take some time to experience the contests, the chalk festival, and benefit from the sponsored offerings. I’ll include a link in the description for that as well!
I’m sure all that excitement is making you extremely hungry, so here’s a great Italian option to hold you over for days. Genitti’s Hole In The Wall, located on Main st and was established in 1971 as a grocery store that transformed into a very popular entertainment venue for the most amazing Italian food. Known famously for their 7 course family style Italian dinner which includes: Italian wedding soup, endless pasta, chicken, potatoes, with a cannoli to put the cherry on top. This meal will satisfy you for years to come, so be sure to pack those antacid tablets.
Another great restaurant to make a visit to is Deadwood Bar & Grill. There may not be anything too special about a bar and grill but this one is especially unique with its Adirondack style eatery and a menu that will have you going cross-eyed looking at all the options. They are known for having the heated igloo dining experience that seats up to 10 people. There’s a $250 food and beverage minimum, but with an atmosphere like that, money doesn’t mean anything.
