9/3/2014 Houghton, Michigan — During Labor Day weekend my taste buds celebrated in Houghton, Michigan with some of the best restaurant selections around! Don’t get me wrong, my taste buds weren’t the only ones celebrating during Labor Day weekend. I ended up spoiling myself with several trips to my favorite restaurants. Time and time again the restaurant selections in the Keweenaw never disappoint. My family, a few friends and myself stopped at a restaurant in Dollar Bay on Saturday night. My taste buds (and myself) enjoyed the Wet Burrito… YUMMY!

Then, on Sunday we decided to skip the restaurants and enjoy a cook-out at the City Park in Houghton along the Portage Canal. The weather and food were both beautiful…. just enough to satisfy my weekend hunger. On Monday the family and I stopped at a Mexican Restaurant in Hancock. Again, the food was out of this world. I’m not too big on spicy foods, but decided to go all out with the fire sauce. A mistake? Not really…. every now and then these taste buds need to be tamed!

Labor Day weekend couldn’t have been beat. The campfire along the Portage Canal each evening wrapped up the night. Stories about the good ol’ days were told around the campfire. Nothing like a fantastic trip to wrap up the Summer in Houghton, Michigan. I love the Keweenaw. Now, if I could only convince my taste buds that they need to wait until next Summer to enjoy so many trips to our favorite restaurants.
