5 Things Everyone From Three Rivers Knows

#5. Kayaking!

The place is called Three Rivers after all.  Let's just say it's not hard to find a good place to Kayak here.  A huge thanks to Michelle McWilliams for the suggestion and the photo.

#4. Lowry’s Books

This popular bookstore in the gorgeous Three Rivers downtown area have pretty glowing 5 star reviews on yelp like this one from Kswiss S.,

Loved this quaint little book store. Owners are very helpful. If there's a book you want old or new they have it. Cute little hidden treasure.

#3. Pinup Salon

Just two weeks ago Katie Beth Bowers had this to say in her 5 star review on Google reviews,

Quiet, quaint and friendly. Excellent service. The salon is clean and very well taken care of. Best salon in TR. Best cut and colour I've had in years! ❤

#2.  Speed Trap

Don't let all of those lanes on US 131 fool you.  The speed limit is not nearly as fast as it should be.  Am I right?

#1.  Weenie Kings

This Three Rivers favorite is a mobile hot dog joint started by Mike King in 2006.  Great...now I'm hungry.

OK, this didn't make the top 5, but it's a thing.  As a teenager, I once lived on the corner of French and Hooker in Three Rivers, MI.
