Hubby, in much need of a "night away" decided to take a drive to Marshall, Michigan - Home of the famous Schuler's Restaurant & Pub. He decided to take two of the kids with us. This fountain is in the center of the town's round- about. At night this fountain has colored lights and the water looks absolutely beautiful. Marshall lodging was sold out, so we had to stay about 25 miles from there, and did not want to drive back just for photos. Otherwise you'd be viewing them.
Years ago, Hubby and I ate at Schuler's for his birthday. I remember it costing us about $80.00 for dinner for two, and one bottle of wine. It is fine dining at it's best.
Downtown Marshall has a variety of stores, and many that are in old, historic buildings. Unfortunately, many of the stores have closed and reopened by other businesses, or remained empty. It's constantly changing. However, I did see that my favorite antique store, Amazing Grace, is still in business. It holds several floors of fun shopping. However, it is not air conditioned. Kate's Diner is also still open for business and still serving customers (50's style diner). Almost all of the downtown businesses are closed on Sunday's during the summer (we found the art gallery, a few smaller antique stores, the coffee shop, and a restaurant open).
My only purchase in Marshall, was an antique motel key chain and key. They had a basket of these, and it was fun to pick one out.
If you ever get the chance to visit Marshall, MI in the summer, be sure to pull into the Hi-Lite.
Their specialty is homemade root beer, served in frosted glass mugs.
And of course, a large menu of other drive-in foods, including hand dipped onion rings.
The waitresses are not wearing roller skates, but you might just see one wearing a poodle skirt.
Guess who wants to go on the next trip? Ha ha! Tiger!
