  • Have been here several times. October is off season and not as crowded, so it is easier to see things in the little shops. A great variety . Never did the boat ride but hear it is nice.  more »
  • There are some good shops and interesting places to pick up a snack. The boat ride was by far the best part of this place. Some of the area seemed sparse. They could use a few more shops and entertain...  more »

  • 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.
