2020 Fan-Made Itinerary

For National Travel and Tourism Week, we turned to our Instagram followers to create something special. You voted for your favorite things to do around Livingston County, now here’s your perfect itinerary!

1 Morning

It’s the most important meal of the day! Our followers recommended  M Street Baking Co. or Brighton Coffeehouse and Theater for breakfast, before taking it easy with a walk downtown. Enjoy the Mill Pond in Brighton as you shop from stores like Rosy’s Boutique and London Beauty, or stroll the award-winning downtown Howell for a nice relaxing morning.

2 Afternoon

Our followers decided that renting kayaks was their ideal afternoon activity. You can do this at a park like Island Lake Recreation Area or from Screams Souvenirs in Hell. Or, bring your own and explore the Brighton-Howell Area’s over 184 lakes.

Paddlesports work up an appetite though! What are you hungry for? We saw votes for The Fuel, The Wooden Spoon, Hamburg Pub, Poké Fresh, and Aberrant Ales!

The Fuel
3 Evening

After a day out on the lake, it’s time for dinner and a show! Whether you’re hitting up Emagine, MJR, or the Howell Historic Theater, you’re in for a fun and entertaining evening. Grab a delicious from any of these places that our Instagram followers recommend- Cello, 2Fog’s, Boubons, or Tomato Brothers.

Cello Italian Restaurant
4 Nightcap

Need one last adventure before you head to your hotel and call it a night? No worries! Our followers recommend grabbing a drink from 2Fog’s, El Arbol, or Howell’s MainStreet Winery. If you’re looking to satisfy a sweet tooth, grab a treat from Cap’n Frosty or M Street Baking Co.
