Lots of construction to get to it. The restaurants are worth the visit. The cherry shop was the star. Others kitchie touristy.

Restaurants, micro breweries, specialty shops are plentiful. It is a great place to spend a nice evening or afternoon. Parking on the street is metered.

I really do enjoy a walk down front street. There are some great shops for men, women and children of all ages. Restaurants, pubs and wine tastings are plentiful. You could spend all day exploring just a few city blocks. Fun for everyone!

Front street is a hidden gem in Traverse City. There are great shops with loads of cherry products and souvineers to take back home.

This seems to be the main commercial street in the city. Alot to see and do. Many dining options. Pay parking lots a block away and street parking.
