Grand Traverse Commons

It's hard to think of a more beautiful spot for a spring shopping spree than the Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a unique commercial/residential complex built in what was once Traverse City's mental hospital. Just a few minutes west of Traverse City's downtown shopping district, it's a beautiful collection of shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants in a cluster of creamy castles surrounded by acres of beautiful wooded grounds that are alive with blossoms and birdsong each spring.

Shoppers love to stroll through the shops and galleries of the Mercato, a fascinating underground shopping center, as well as the restaurants and shops scattered around the outdoor piazza. In spring, it's tempting to take a walk through the adjoining arboretum and enjoy the scent of spring wildflowers.
