Lively and bustling are with lots of shops and eateries. Several benches along the way for bored husbands or for enjoying cookies purchased at Cookies on Call or one of the fudge shops.

Lots of quaint shops and a few wine tasting stores. Everything is very clean and there are chairs along the sidewalks for people to rest. The ice cream shops were a major hit and I loved seeing local artists rather than all the commercialized shops.

Great street with lots of different shops and people watching opportunity. Don't forget to check out the information booth with free brochures, etc... just south of the old city hall. Also don't miss the old drug store with the soda fountain in the back!

Butler Street has a nice selection of different kinds of shops and restaurants. We went in each of them, and were most impressed with the working studio and art gallery. I bought some of his boxed note cards for presents. Very reasonably priced. The candies were delicious from the corner candy store. We were able to buy a Christmas ornament... More

Our family of six is always happy to eat at the Butler. It's good food if you stick to the basics like burgers and such. Crabcakes are exceedingly ordinary and not work the trouble, but the service and basic food items are always good.

A great shopping experience with lots of shops and galleries. Although I was there with my husband, it would be a great "girls weekend" location. Bought lots of things for our home and garden. Can't wait to come back before Christmas!

Oh yes, prices can be high but don't let that stop you from going there. It's a beautiful little coast town on Michigan's west side. The shops are all different and interesting with many good restaurants to choose from. I just enjoy walking the streets and enjoying the excitement of this busy little town. In the Summer months it is... More
