    Fun variety. Especially appreciated the Michigan Store! I found some items I could not resist for myself & gifts

    It was a cute shopping area! It's the type of place that you would plan to go to if you needed something. I wouldn't recommend going here for a random shopping day. Oh, and one of the cupcake shops won Cupcake Wars a few years ago. I thought that was cool.

    Very repetitive shops, same stuff over and over in a lot of them. A lot of unique shops as well. A bit pricey but Thats the price you pay for tourism. Nice place to go walking with the family add the events are fun

    There are lots of neat shops, and the layout and scenery are beautiful. The cupcake shop is a highlight! One of the women's clothing stores is quite nice as well.

    I thought it would be a square more for kids but it wasn't. My grandson managed to fine one store to buy putty. He was all done with walking. He likes walking down the streets better.
