“Silver Twinkies – – YUM!!!”
Story Behind the Name
The iconic Airstream camper is affectately known as a Silver Twinkie. You know us. We are always thinking food.
On this action packed episode of UTR it’s back to a tail of two cities. First up, we hit Flint for a new place right downtown that’s reconnecting urbanites with real food. Then we find a better burger that’s so good … the name of the place says it all. We’ll even take you to a park where you and your favorite off-road ride can get down and dirty in the mud. Then, it’s off to the Island City of Eaton Rapids where a team of Airstreams take over the entire town. We’ll also meet a cool young couple who are teaching the old hotdog some delicious new tricks, and do some fine dining at an English Inn that has it’s own party pub right downstairs. Two more great towns for you to try right here on Under the Radar Michigan.
If you haven’t been to Flint … you’ll see why I love it right when you drive downtown. This is a city with an illustrious past … a vibrant present … and a promising future. There are tons of new up and coming businesses … awesome establishments … and there’s enough creative cuisine here to keep you coming back again and again.
Welcome to the only Eaton Rapids on the planet – – and it’s right here in Michigan! And if that isn’t cool enough for you, here’s another interesting tidbit….Eaton Rapids entire downtown is actually on an island…hence the nickname…The Island City.
Eaton Rapids is conveniently located smack dab in the middle of the mitten, just 30 minutes south of Lansing.
If you’re looking for Main Street America … with a heepin helpin of hometown atmosphere … Eaton Rapids is a place where you should plop yourself down … and make yourself right at home.
