We’re the Michigan’s Best team and recently and we looked for Michigan’s best bowling alley Put on your bowling shoes as we recap the best in the state of Michigan Coming in at number 5 is Merri-Bowl in Livonia Originally built in 1959, there has been a complete overhaul in the past few years. Everything here is in tip-top shape. You can see that attention to detail in everything at Merri bowl. It features 40 lanes and make sure to try the homemade soup. Number four is Gerlach lanes over in Lapeer Make that lovely Lapeer Amy because the Gerlach family has owned bowling alleys in Lapeer since 1919. And while many of the old fashioned roots are still present, there are some really cool modern upgrades like the Qubica scoring system. This feature allows you to play a variety of games in each lane. And do not miss the pro shop in the basement it is the biggest in Michigan with over 5,000 bowling balls to choose from. Over in Tecumseh you’ll find #3, Ten Pin Alley and Big Mike’s Ken and Jody have established a strong bowling community and have dedicated themselves to developing youth bowling. Ten Pin have a personal touch that will make you feel like family when you walk in the door. All 24 of their lanes are well-maintained. Coming in at #2 Airway Fun Center in Portage Michigan. This is a family entertainment center but bowling still remains the center of focus. 39 lanes are available including six private ones in a VIP bowling suite. You can also play laser tag, do a high ropes course, drive bumper cars or experienced an escape room. It’s also home to more than 1,000 league bowlers. Place that bowled a 300 in our books was E-lane’s in Fowler. This is our #1 pick for Michigan’s best bowling alley. Owners Greg and Elaine purchased the alley in 2012 and spent more than a year remodeling, when a lightning bolt struck and burned the building to the ground. But the Fowler community helped them rebuild and in 2014 they opened under the name E-lanes. This is the perfect family oriented spot with just 6 lanes.
