Canton Plymouth Metettal Airport - Canton, MI

If you look for a place to fly to have some good time, Canton Plymouth Metettal airport 1D2 is one of the best places in Michigan to come. The nice airport is surrounded with things that flyers are looking for at the end of their pleasure flights. You are looking for some decent places for food? The Coney Island is on the west side of the airport, just across from the airport entrance. The Three Brother’s Restaurant which is well known for its Polish food is just north of the airport almost at the end of the Runway 36. Like to see some flowers and plants for relaxing? Walk to the two green houses just north of the strip mall where the Coney Island restaurant located. A couple pots of plants or flowers will add some nice fragrant in your airplane on the flight home. Plymouth downtown is a small, conservative but very nice place to visit. It.is just a few blocks north west from the airport. Unless you bring a bike with you, Enterprise Rent A Car will pick you up and rent you a car. It usually has very low car rental during the weekend, about $20-$30 during the weekend. Call them first to make sure if they are open. I live in Canton which is next to Plymouth but I love to come to Plymouth downtown during weekends. I love coffee at the Starbuck, or lunch at Panera, sit at the Kellogg park, or visit the library nearby. If you are a tea drinker, you must visit the famous Sweet Afton Tea Room. All of them are in the small downtown area. Just just a couple blocks south of the airport is the Canton Township. Canton also has many nice shopping stores, restaurant and the famous Ikea is in this town. This message is too long now, so you will have to find out more about Canton by yourself. As a long time pilot I am sad to see many fun places to fly to gradually disappear. I feel dumb to land at an airport just to have a cup of coffee at the restaurant on the airport, and fly home! So Metettal airport is one of the few places that you still can land for some variety of food, enjoy a walk and some other activities. Happy landing.

Charlevoix Downtown - Charlevoix, MI

This harbor town in NW lower Michigan is about as nice as they come! The airport staff is very welcoming, and the walk into town is less than a mile and flat. Once there you will find a sweet town nestled between Lake Michgan and Round Lake the harbor connected by a short channel. Nice shops in town with many good food options. Go across the drawbridge to the Weathervane restaurant for our favorite. You can walk out to Lake Michigan along the channel or in the park along Round Lake. This is second only to Mackinac Island for must-see flying destinations in Michigan, only this is closer and involves less walking.
