Episode 108: "A Tale of Two Tawas’"

TAWAS & EAST TAWAS, MONROE

FIRST STOP, TEWAS CITY and EAST TAWAS:
This episode has everything from culture and kites, to food and a fantastic boat trip. Under The Radar travels up to Tawas City and East Tawas for a tale of two cities that when combined, make one great place to live work and play. Tom takes a fascinating boat trip to Charity Island.

NEXT STOP, MONROE:
We finish our Michigan adventure in Monroe, a beautiful city with great history, and wonderful people. You’ll visit a boutique hotel that will blow your mind; get a dose of the rich history of the area; and hear from two local artists that are putting a creative eye on Monroe. Tom also discovers two gourmet restaurants that are worth the drive to Monroe, no matter how far away you live.

Then, once back on the mainland, show you the only full service resort in Michigan that's on Lake Huron. After all that, Tom still finds time to fly a kite, and sample some of the best beef jerky on planet earth.

Hotel Sterling
Not enough words to say how special the Hotel Sterling is. Any so-called cool city in Michigan would kill to have this located downtown. `nuff said.

Kleenow's Market
We've all been in the corner market in small towns. We all secretly hope that the guy behind the meat counter will remember our name like the previous 3 customers…and can't wait to get home with these 2" porterhouses.

Trend 440
We've said it before…art connects a city. This is a city that doesn't shy away from art. Trend 440 combins that connection to art with our homes in a very artistic way.
