Best Bocce Courts: Palazzo di Bocce

4291 Lapeer Rd., Orion Twp.; 248-371-9987;

This combined Italian restaurant and bocce ball court is such a great idea, and ideal for larger groups (parties over a dozen are encouraged to make reservations). Whether your grandparents played this centuries-old sport in the old country, or you just picked it up yourself after seeing it in a movie last month, Palazzo offers the ideal spot to play.
