Michigan artists, One of a kind shops, Quaint little Bistros, Lots of outdoor places to sit and rest while shopping and a lovely, colorful street! Go in the morning so you get a good parking place. Spring-Summer-Fall! I usually go twice a year.

Love this walkway. So many seats all over so you can't get too tired. We took our 80 year old parents and they were happy to keep stopping in the bright chairs. Tommy Bahamas, art galaries, nice boutiques, very cute

Fun antique and gift shops for a few blocks. Also had some ice cream and chocolate shops. We just browsed for about an hour. A few places were more touristy, I could tell by the prices.

The entire downtown, including Butler At is walkable! There are a couple charming parks in addition to numerous shops and restaurants. Most restaurants have an outdoor patio so if people watching is your thing then this is the place for you! Art lovers will have many choices of galleries! Tacky tourist souvenirs are not common.

Pack your walking shoes!! There's a ton of cute shops to explore on Butler street. There's a little bit of everything here. Many clothing store and art stores but there's also some that have wine tastings and kitchen goods. Parking was not as issue. Plan on spending a whole day exploring the shops.
