Don't visit if your hungry - you could eat your way from one end to the other with great stuff. The popcorn, chocolates, crepes, all were tempting. Nice game room to drop the kids off at.

Who ever heard that if you want to get more than one type of ice cream there is an additional charge? It is listed no where on their signs just the price for additional scoops. Feel that the girl behind the counter was lazy and just didn't want to scoop a variety.

Our family visited the Old Time Photo shop in the River Place a few weeks ago. The man and woman working there were excellent, fun, and professional.

When we last visited it wasn't worth going. However the store fronts are filling up again and the new TERVIS store was fantastic. They had a great variety of styles including some new Christmas themed cups. The Yankee Candle store was one of largest we've ever been in with many choices and excellent sales staff who responded to every question.

This little village with heated pavement has many neat shops and cool boutiques conveniently located on Main Street close to the Cass River. There are lots of benches for just sitting and watching the world go by and ice cream shops, donuts, drinks and neat places to buy very nice clothes and toys. Very much a place to visit when...

We had a wonderful time! Everyone we met were pleasant. The shops were interesting. Out of the ordinary gifts to find at many of the shops.
