Lot's of great shops and restaurants. The sidewalks are very treacherous in the winter though. I'm surprised they don't do a better job.

There is a large variety of stores on Main Street Traverse City for virtually all budgets. If you tire of shopping there are many very good non chain restaurants. I always find it fun to be on Main Street.

Fun to look, a bit pricey in spots. Make sure you stop in Cherry Republic for everything cherry. Except for restaurants, most stores close early (5 pm) anytime other than summer.
