There’s something about a good book and a nice cup of tea that just soothes the soul. No matter the genre of book or flavor of tea, it’s always a great way to relax and recharge. The experience can be even more special when you can do both in comfortable atmospheres away from home. In Michigan’s Oakland County, you can do just this by visiting Paper Trail Books in Royal Oak followed by The Purple Door Tea Room in Ferndale. Located under four miles from one another, the two make for a great day trip in Michigan for book lovers.

Check out the website for Paper Trail Books and the Facebook page for The Purple Door Tea Room for the most up-to-date information on visiting both.
