More than 50 years go, Mike Ilitch was poised for major-league glory. An up-and-coming shortstop for the Detroit Tigers, his baseball finesse was blossoming when an injury derailed his sports career. But although the wound stunted his athletic aspirations, it steered him toward a new path, and on May 8, 1959, he and his wife opened the first Little Caesars location, a then-unheard-of carry-out-only joint. The career shift and novel technique eventually proved triumphant. Today, the pizzeria's iconic, toga-clad mascot adorns storefronts on five continents. In each shop, staffers forge the signature Hot-N-Ready pizza, a freshly baked pizza designed for instant pickup, and warm, garlicky Crazy bread. With a storied half century under their belt, Mike Ilitch and his family strive to give back, supporting local organizations and creating their own charitable programs.
Ever since it was founded a half century ago, Mitchell Farms has remained the beloved life's work of the Mitchell family. Situated on 1,500 acres of woods and fields, the farm produces crops such as peanuts, peaches, blueberries, and soybeans. It's also home to three century-old log cabins, each adorned with antiques, patchwork quilts, and other collectable pieces.
Throughout the year, visitors can tour the historic cabins, talk farming with the Mitchell family, or purchase homemade jams, jellies, and honey. The farm's peanuts have been a staple for more than 30 years and are now grown on a full 300 acres to accommodate demand. During the fall, guests can sample fresh-dug peanuts or take home dried nuts. The fall also brings with it the Mississippi Peanut Festival, as well as a slew of onsite autumnal activities. Families can tour the farm in a covered wagon or board the Pumpkin Express train. A play area keeps children active with rope swings, play equipment, and a scarecrow drill sergeant instructing kids to drop and give him candy corn.

Owning a bar was not Patrick Sullivan's primary life goal. "Archaeologist" claimed that title, but after three years of kneeling in the dirt digging holes and finding nothing but Martian bones, he decided that wasn't the life for him. When he came to his parents with his idea of opening a bar, he was in for a shock: instead of scolding him for throwing away a good career, his parents approved. His mother even volunteered to be his business partner. A second shock came when three months before Patrick was set to have all the money he needed, his mother was killed in an accident. To honor her wishes, Patrick's father took on her responsibilities to the business, and in 2005, Government Street Grocery opened to the public.
The welcoming vibe beyond the bar's neon-splashed front doors is a fitting tribute to Patrick's mother, as local art lines the walls and live bands regularly fill the space with the danceable rhythms of blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, and rock tunes. As guests take in the entertainment, they can savor a plethora of hearty bar food ranging from 100% Angus burgers to massive muffuletta sandwiches to vegetarian options such as veggie burgers and falafel wraps. And then, of course, there's the beer. An ever-changing lineup of craft brews from Rogue, Abita, New Belgium, and other producers pour into pint glasses, while those of a more spirited persuasion sip cocktails mixed from premium spirits at the full bar.
