No Traverse City trip is complete without at least one day spent shopping our boutiques, art galleries and antique shops. Downtown Traverse City is a destination unto itself, with its tree-lined streets, historic buildings and sidewalk cafes.
Just a few minutes away is The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a truly unique shopping and dining destination. Visit the Mercado for jewelry, books and artistic treasures. Then stay for lunch or dinner at one of the fantastic eateries or fine-dining restaurants that call The Village home.
Want to make a day of it? Head to one of the port towns within half an hour's drive to experience the relaxing feel of small-town shopping. Tooling along spectacular stretches of Grand Traverse Bay, you’ll realize the drive is half the fun!
Farm markets are another not-to-be-missed stop during your visit to Traverse City. Enjoy seasonal produce as well as cheeses, preserves, flowers and handmade treasures.
