Always enjoy walking the area, shopping or just seeing what a variety of items are available. All small businesses and locally owned. Owners and staff are always friendly and anxious to be helpful. We love to support the local businesses as much as we can....Take an afternoon or evening and see what they have to offer!

We enjoyed walking around the Gaslight District. Buildings have been restored with attention to their historic period. Easy to park and get around. We ate at a Thai restaurant and walked around after dinner.

Petoskey is such a great place to live or visit ! The people are the best always willing to give you directions or suggestions of places to go. We have the best book store , Circus Shop for children , Bearcub Outfitters, and Linda Michaels for Jewelry . So many great places it's hard to narrow it down .

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.
