just a strolling & browsing

Actually went downtown to go to Cherry Republic and a brewery or two. It's film festival time but I didn't think it was too hard to get around. Lots of cute looking shops.

Our family isn't big on walking the downtown area of most small towns, but there was something really nice about Front Street. We walked and browsed, didn't really shop, but had a pleasant time. It was busy, but not overwhelming and we'd do it again.

A trip to Traverse City is not complete without a walk along Front Street. There is something for everyone. Young and old. Plenty to see and do. Shop, eat or enjoy a movie.

Front Street is a very safe and friendly place to shop at nearly all price points. If you go to Traverse City, don't miss Front Street. Parking can be difficult.
