“Wonderful street to wander and shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

There are a great variety of stores on Front Street and we munched on home made fudge while strolling up and down the street! We enjoyed stores with art as well as clothing and one of a kind articles. Looking forward to going back!

“New Years 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

The Front Street area in Traverse City is really a great place to stroll, check out the windows and step into adventures in the pubs, shops and info areas. The ice sculptures are amazing. For New Years, despite the cold, many stores were open, lots of folks, well behaved, walking about and a good time being had by all. While the music was not my preference, my son (22) seemed to enjoy it!. Watching the big cherry drop was neat and a great way to bring in the new year. I strongly recommed the heated seats for the ride home next year.

“Our favorite downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Front Street is always a beautiful place to visit, but at Christmas, it was magical; frozen carved ice sculptures on the sidewalks, bright lights, and the huge Christmas tree!!

“fun downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Many interesting shops and food stops. Especially pretty during the winter, not so busy, yet very small town feeling.
