The 17 acres inside the Michigan Renaissance Festival? don't obey the rules of the outside world. Instead, they bring the 16th century back in vivid tapestry-color?and though the celebration only lasts a few short weeks, the festival has been a beloved local tradition for more than three decades, drawing more than 250,000 people each year.

Step through the gates, and explore recreated Renaissance-era buildings including stables and a castle. Nearby shops host more than 300 artisans, selling wares such as metal sculptures or lavish costumes. Tavern owners roast turkey legs over open flames, while entertainers continuously weave throughout the streets and perform on 17 themed stages. Comedy, music, and full-contact jousting unfolds to the delight of the crowd, which may even include Queen Elizabeth herself, assuming she remembers where she put her horse keys.

When Fenton Winery Brewery started, its taproom had just three beers on tap: wheat, amber, and imperial nut brown. Since 2009, however, that selection has expanded to more than ten beers, and that's not to mention the wines patrons can sample on the premises. The winery-and-brewery crafts more than 20 vintages, including a rotation of seasonal styles such as fall's Apple Pie wine and summer's Wine You Can Freeze Into A Popsicle If You Want. Summer is an especially good season on the grounds, too?visitors can sip their brews in a beer garden that sprawls across more than an acre.
