ROUTE 1: OLD MISSION PENINSULA
Reverend Peter Dougherty planted the area's first cherry tree on Old Mission Peninsula in 1852, and one of the state's most bountiful blossom drives—a straight shot on M-37 to the peninsula's end—can fittingly include an audio tour of the house he built in 1842 and a nearby log church. Between blossom sniffs and photos, stop and see Mission Point Lighthouse and hit up the Old Mission General Store for funky antiques and reproductions, pie and aged cheddar. Then make a few stops along the peninsula's noteworthy wine trail. Hilltop beauty Chateau Chantal offers views of bays and blossoms, or drink in the view from Bonobo's wide patio.
