I recently found myself in Lowell Michigan on a business trip.
I didn’t have too high of expectations for the area. I figured I would just do my workload, eat at the hotel and then fly back home. I only had to suffer a few days there after all. I Found that I really enjoyed the area. It was quaint, cute and there was quite a bit to do. The shopping was really neat. I found a wine store that offered a lot of wines that I had never heard of. There were tons of unique boutiques that carried items I would have not found otherwise. Bridge Street Market also offered a lot of different types of shopping. I am normally not a big shopper, but I had a great shopping day and enjoyed the food as well. The city is clean, safe and the weather was very nice while I was there. I wasn’t at all bummed by my trip to Lowell. Now when my place of work needs someone to travel, I am not so hesitant. I did research the area a bit before going though. Before I just blindly stayed in hotels and did nothing. If I would have researched Lowell beforehand, I would have found more things to do I am sure. I later figured out that Michigan is a recreational weed state. I could have found a dispensary and picked up some products. I could have tried edibles, vaped an oil, something. But I went into it with no knowledge and didn’t even walk into a dispensary. That was a big letdown.
