“Charming boutiques with unique items”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is a very nice area near the waterfront in "Downtown" Petoskey filled with unique little shops and eateries. Every storefront is attractive and inviting, with flower planters and hanging baskets everywhere. Once you step inside, friendly staff greet visitors and encourage them to browse. In one shop, we admired the beautiful merchandise but gasped at the high prices of the linens and housewares. In another home goods store, the prices were more reasonable and we bought some items that were on sale and needed at home. We also picked up some coffee from the Life is Good store. Wonderful way to take a stroll at a leisurely pace before or after a meal in town.

“Unique and Delightful Shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Looking for the unusual and creative this it the area. It abounds in artful offerings, cozy bookstores, a gourmet condiments shop, a bountiful shoe and boot store with Stormy Cromer hats galore and even a old style general store to peruse. Take your time and check it all out.

“Somewhere in time- Absolutely Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Several streets containing early 1900s, well kept buildings on a hillside overlooking Little Traverse Bay. I suggest spending the weekend at the Perry Hotel which has some of the best views and great food as well. Everything is within walking distance of the hotel, including the Petoskey Waterfront and Wheelway. Downtown Petoskey has a wonderful variety of shops and eateries. Truly unique.

“GOOD MIX OF STORE FRONTS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Enjoyed exploring the different stores - something for everyone! Some pricing reasonable, some too expensive to even browse! The layout was very conducive to an enjoyable experience. After parking, it's an easy walk through the area:)
