Downtown – Cheboygan, Michigan

This open-air canopy provides a covered space for markets and community events to occur.

Loved to see a playful public art element near the market. The murals were simple but effective filling the wall and bringing “a little bit of happy” to those who pass by.

Loved this cinder block and beam bench. What a clever idea to provide seating and send a visual cue that something interesting is happening inside this storefront. So we checked it out.

It was really three stores – kids toys, a playspace, and a DIY arts and craft space. Apparently they’ve done it all since they have opened – hosting parties, etc.

We couldn’t leave without a Mystery Bag. For the next few days though it traveled in our trunk so the boys could look forward to opening it at just the right moment. Hence, the mystery only grew. Glad we got it too – to fill the long car ride.

Loved this alley. Not a major thoroughfare but a place that could be passed through. The green adds a nice element to the street. A little art would be even better.

Interesting storefront, made to look like a diamond.

A new project was under construction. Looks like it honors the historic architecture of this building and surrounding ones.

On our way out grabbed a photo of the Art Park before hitting the road. Enjoyed visiting Cheboygan.
