We enjoy spending time in the Historic Gaslight District of Petoskey. So many neat shops and great restaurants to explore in this beautifully renovated downtown area.

Hard to find a place to park and have to pay meters but it was worth it once we found a spot. My family and I enjoyed browsing in the shops!

Take a nice walk downtown. Smaller area than I was expecting. Stores, ice cream and fudge shops, some restaurants. Everything closes early though and plenty of places are not open for dinner. I'd recommend it.

Traveled to the Gaslight District three different times when we were in the area. Lots of high end shops and restaurants and lots of people shopping. Don't miss Cutler's on Michigan and don't miss the Grand Traverse Pie Company on Mitchell. Really wonderful shopping experience!
