A street set up for shopping. Clean, wide sidewalks, easy access to the other side of the street. Good maps on the street and in many stores. The maps are kept up to date. Many really great food establishments and unique stores. Worth the trip to get there.

Front Street is a delight which improves yearly as to its tenant base and selection of restaurants, clothing stores and odds and ends. You will find high end clothiers, and tee shirt shops, a model train store, kite store, galleries and even a drug store.

Very crowded in summer...may be better in spring and fall. Nice variety of specialty stores. Miss the old Milliken store. State Theater is a big asset.

Great shops up and down the street. Especially love Pop-Kies popcorn, the State Theatre, Yen Yoga, Haystacks, and Little Fleet food trucks. But much more - great street!

I live here, so it's just great anytime. Great restaurants. Many interesting local shops. Close to the bay if you want to walk down to the marina and waterfront. Our wonderful bays and Front St: It's why many of moved here!

Three years ago I retired from a job in the state capital and moved to Traverse City (TC). My observations: Any visit to the TC area must include a stroll along Front Street. This is not a contrived tourist spot. My barber and attorney are both located there; as well as nice shops, diverse food and drink, a renovated theatre,... More

If you want to see a movie, grab a bite to eat or a 4 course meal, find a good book, gift shopping or something for yourself it all can be found on Downtown Front Street.

Everything that you can think of. Three or four blocks of stores and things to see. Also good places to eat.

Located roughly 1 to 2 short blocks from the waterfront...this is where all the shopping spots are located. Many of the nicer restaurants are within a block of Front St. Also. If so inclined you can reach Clinch Park by a tunnel which goes under the busy highway.
