Traverse City is one of my favorite places anywhere in the world. My kids grew up visiting TC and watching it develop into a beautiful area that never loses its considerable small town charm.

Parking was a challenge. (Of course, we visited Front Street during New Years Eve.) Lots of local shops lined Front Street. I'm sure parking isn't an issue during the summer because walking weather is much better than winter. There is a wide variety of shops to choose. Food, clothing, and local wares. Front Street is a small town shoppers delight.

Has a lot to offer and a lot of character. We stopped in Antique store hair style salons and restrauants.

I went to Traverse City with my famiy back in May 2010 and it was a perfect getaway for us. I would recommend this place to anyone considering some time alone in the nature.

Traverse city had a lengthy street of shops. All were very cute stores and the bar/restaurant scene was great. We found a few things to buy and ended up in mackinac brewing. Parking is a little desired, it was a little hard to find. But one you are out if the car, enjoy the atmosphere!

If you haven't been here you should come. Front street is the main downtown street with lots of great places to shop, eat, and you can stay in the Park Place hotel right in the middle of it all! Tons of unique restaurants for all tastes.

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