I love going to Pentwater because in about 80 – 90 minutes (from Grand Rapids), I can escape to a place that feels like I’m way up north in a little seaside village with lots of cute little shops. Today, I’m even going to help you go shopping and explore the town. Here’s some of of my favorite places in Pentwater, they are all located downtown on Hancock Street:
Air Fun Kites: Lots and lots of unique kites and flying things for the air!
House of the Setting Sun Art Gallery: A wonderfully relaxing little gallery of fun by Renee Berggren Connoy.
Gardener’s Folly: Interesting, fun and unique things for your home and garden.
Blue Mermaid Gems: Really cool, reasonably priced jewelry supplies.
Bitchin Kitchen: If you love cooking, you’ll love all the gadgets and stuff here.
Oldewick Post: Coffee’s and gifts.
Then after a fun day in Pentwater, take a scenic drive back to Grand Rapids on B-15 and go through Hart. Of course, that means dinner at the Mexican restaurant locals flock to from miles around, La Fiesta (located at State and Main in Hart.)
Okay, so there you have it a fun day trip from Grand Rapids. Here’s a google map link to Pentwater… maybe I’ll see you there!
