Erin had her niece and nephews up for lunch and wasn't sure where she was going to take them. They're pretty young so she needed to find a kid friendly restaurant so She did a little research to figure out where to go. She found several good places for lunch and dinner, take a look.

Flint has a vast history from the automotive industry which made Flint a great area to live in and run a business. Some of these stores disappeared after the decline of the automotive world and some are gone due to the growing popularity of chain stores.

The holidays will be here before you know it, which means it's time to start thinking about where you're going to buy your Christmas tree. I've put together a list of places that you and your family can go to for the perfect tree. Hopefully these ideas will help you get ready this season.

Flint is known for many things — the automotive industry (what's left,) the awful crime rate and high unemployment — that being said we are known for a few good things, some of the food staples that are from our great city

Best Haunted Houses Around Flint

by: George McIntyre
 
 

As if Flint isn’t scary enough already! My son David and I look forward to October each year, because it’s haunted-house season! The Flint area offers several that are good, and several are located in close proximity, near the point in Grand Blanc. Ranking them was actually “tricky” this year because all five offer roughly the same amount of fright. We think it’s fun to do something where the scariest part isn’t waiting in line!

Fall Activities in Flint

by: Erin Bishop
 
 

Summer went by way too fast and the holidays will be here before you know it. But before that happens, why not take advantage of some great fall activities for the entire family. I did a little research and came up with a few ideas of things to do outdoors while the weather is still nice. If I missed anything, feel free to add other events and activities.

There's nothing better than a home cooked Thanksgiving dinner but maybe this year you don't feel like cooking and you're thinking you want to go out. That way you don't have the hassle of cleaning, cooking and getting ready for a lot of company. I did some research and found a few places that will be serving a fantastic meal.

Being close to Hallow's Eve we decided to find Flint's 'true haunts' that may exist. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, Flint's deep history in lumber and manufacturing history — accidents could have occurred leaving souls roaming these locations.

Okay it's time to find the perfect Halloween costume for the party you plan on attending and you're not sure where to go. I always wait until the last minute to buy my costume, but I actually planned ahead this year and already have one. Last year I waited until the day of Halloween to shop but I learned my lesson.
