Shopping Downtown Traverse City


​From our enchanting beachside main street shopping district to our eclectic shops scattered throughout the region, Traverse City is a shoppers' paradise.

Downtown Traverse City stretches for several blocks along the southern end of Grand Traverse Bay. Explore specialty shops, buy some freshly-made fudge, eat lunch at a sidewalk table, or enjoy some live jazz at a Front Street bistro. Take a 5-minute drive to the Village at Grand Traverse Commons to soak up some local history while you investigate one-of-a-kind boutiques, art galleries, wineries and restaurants.

Elegant shopping – and a whole lot of candy – can be found in the Tower Gallery of Shops at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, where you can find locally-made gifts, logo wear, toys and clothing for children and adults, in addition to Dylan’s Candy Bar, the wildly popular candy emporium.

Want to make a day of it? Head to one of the quaint towns within half an hour's drive to experience the relaxing feel of small-town shopping in Leelanau or Antrim counties.
