Celebrate the return of mild weather with a spring shopping trip to Traverse City. The tree-lined streets of Downtown Traverse City are laden with white blossoms, and shopkeepers prop their doors to welcome the warm spring breezes. Bistro tables and chairs appear on Front Street just in time for the first al fresco lunches of the year. 

Check out Downtown’s many boutiques to see what’s new for the season, or pop into a specialty shop or art gallery to pick up something special for your cottage or a keepsake to bring back home.

Just a few minutes away is The Village at Grand Traverse Commons where spring breezes welcome visitors to a truly unique shopping and dining destination. Visit the Mercado for unique clothing, jewelry, and artistic treasures. Then stay for lunch or dinner at one of the fantastic eateries or fine-dining restaurants that call The Village home.

Head out of town to one of the area’s many port towns for a day of shopping and you’ll be rewarded with spectacular water views and miles of rolling cherry blossoms.
