We were here for an afternoon showing at the Fresh Coast Film Festival. There were multiple locations involved, well staffed with lots of local information available. Shops along Washington St. were nice to browse with a nice variety and relaxed feeling.

I really liked walking down town Marquette. Lots of places to shop, eat or stop for a beer. Must go to Doncker's. Even President Obama was there a few years ago. We ate at Aubrey's Pizza too which was very good.

I always enjoy strolling the town!!! Reminds me of a step back in time with interesting store fronts and quaint unique shops. There's a Farmers market on Saturday's from summer till early December. Definitely worth a stop!!
