Uncommon, commons -- a place unlike any other in Traverse City. Located just a few blocks from Downtown Traverse City, The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is a unique collection of shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants in a cluster of creamy castles, surrounded by acres of beautiful wooded grounds.
Go for the shopping, or the history, or for a guided tour. The Village is one of the largest historic renovation projects in the country. In another life, the property and buildings were known as the Traverse City State Hospital. Plan a day to walk the grounds, take an underground tour of the famous tunnels and spend time relaxing on one of the outdoor patios either sipping wine or fair-trade coffee.
