Love Front St, so refreshing to walk along. You will not find national chains in this area, it’s all about quality local flare & small businesses. Great food, drinks & unique shops offering local items.

Front street goes for miles and has many shops, restaurants and a theater. You can see the bay and go to the beach from here. It is the Main Street of Traverse City!
