This week our small town series lands us in the only place in Michigan that you can take a hot shower in Coldwater.  That would be Coldwater, MI.

OK, I totally stole that shower joke from Doug Henning on Facebook.  But seriously, Coldwater is a gorgeous little Michigan town of just under 11,000 residents.  I asked what your favorite is thing about Coldwater on Facebook and here are some of your answers.

I all way look forward to summer to go here for the Chicago dog, being from Chicago where they have the best dogs, this is a close 2nd . just wish they were open in winter so I can get one my mouth waters just thinking about one.

#1. The Capri Drive-In

Karen Marbaugh mentioned the Capri Drive In has her favorite thing about Coldwater.  OK, she wasn't the only one.  The Capri was mentioned over and over!  Molly had this to say in her 5-star review on,

The drive in is a one of a kind experience; the staff is friendly, the food and popcorn is delicious, the movie selections are always great and the price is very reasonable! The screens are nice and large, so it does not matter where your parked, you will have a great view. Dog friendly and perfect for young families as well. We love going here and try to make a trip a couple of times a year.
