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.

The ice sculptures were super and the tree lighting was beautiful. Love this friendly city. We have been going for this event the last couple of years and recommend it for all family fun.

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.
