Traverse City Shopping

Traverse City ShoppingIf you love to shop, you are coming to the right place. In addition to regular shopping, there are many distinctive merchants in Traverse City. The best place to do some fascinating Traverse City shopping is downtown. There are eleven antiques and art stores, seven of them right on Front Street, the main street for unique Traverse City shopping. There are also several specialty shops, which carry everything from Irish goods to gourmet foods and beverages. There is a shoe store that carries footwear, outdoor apparel, and accessories, so you can be ready for any outdoor activities you have planned. If you are staying in a vacation rental you will have plenty of room to keep all the wonderful finds you pick up during your Traverse City shopping excursions.

There are plenty of places to pamper yourself as well. There is a beauty and cosmetics shop where you can get a makeover, a kitchen shop for the cook, bookstores, body piercing, candles, and more. There are two flower shops downtown, so you can pick out a nice bouquet for that special traveling companion—or for yourself. A vase of flowers and a lighted candle over a nice dinner in your vacation rental will make your vacation even more enjoyable. For food and other necessities, there are two shopping centers with supermarkets and other big chain stores. By cooking in your vacation rental part of the time, you can save money and do some more shopping.

There are plenty of merchants carrying unique foods from Michigan, so you can take some home with you to enjoy later. There are also farmers' markets and produce stands. You can take some fresh produce back to your vacation rental, put it in your fridge and have some quick energy for another exciting day of Traverse City shopping. Did you bring your pet to your vacation rental? There are at least two stores that carry specialty foods for your beloved animal friend.

Did you remember your camera? There are camera shops and film developers close by. Better yet, have your picture taken at one of the professional photographer’s studios and take home a lasting memory.
