Great street, easily walked (when not in too much snow); lots of cafes, restaurants and shops. Definitely the "in" street in Traverse City.

Lots of great shops and of course great fudge places too :) The restaurants were a little eclectic for my taste, but they were crowded, so they must be good!

Very clean and no worries about running into trouble. The variety of places make this fun to visit. Make sure to head to the far west end as there are some great places not to be missed.

Charming downtown area with shops, restaurants and bakeries perfect for strolling and window-shopping. Plenty of (metered) public parking.

Great shopping! Unique restaurants! Friendly people! I like that you don't have to pay for parking after six pm.

Touristy, lots of kitsch and junk, with a few gems like GT Pie and Fustini's Oils, but you can't beat the scenery.

Was an enjoyable couple of hours to work this area close to the lakefront. Several stores featuring local products, some eateries and coffee houses, etc. Nice setting.
