The gaslight district in Petoskey offers unique shopping. Just about no chain stores here so you will see wonderful things you don't see everywhere. Nice restaurants and coffee shops are right there with others very close by. If you don't see exactly what you are looking for, ask and I bet it will be there.

We enjoyed walking the downtown area with our kiddos. Very small and quaint town to get around by foot. We all enjoyed window shopping and stopping into a few stores to browse and buy. Great stores all around and each offer something different and not run of the mill merchandise.

Fun places in a very quaint yet modern area and atmosphere. Cute stores, colthing, gifts, necessities, and things you "just need". Dress well in winter, cold breeze of the lake makes visit pubs often!

I've always enjoyed the streets and the shops. Something for everyone. Roast and toast is my favorite place and I love the gaslights.

This is a classic old, historic downtown shipping district that is very well taken care of and very nice for visitors to shop. There are a nice variety of shops and restaurants, including public restrooms.

This little town left a big impression on my wife and I as we came up to see the tunnel of trees. We could have never left! People are so sweet and kind. Such an eclectic variety of things to do and eat so you have to go. But bring lots of money because you are going to want to... More
