  • One of my favorite places to grab a coffee and wander around finding gifts. If i'm looking for a specific book, even if it's available on Amazon, I'll usually be able to find it at Horizon too! Their pricing is reasonable and you're supporting an awesome local business when you shop here instead. They're always on my list at Christmas to make a pit stop for interesting finds.
  • Excellent bookstore. Not as cozy as some others downtown, but because of their size, they're able to carry so many titles. I especially love their local / Michigan authors titles and local / Michigan history shelves. Added bonus, they have excellent coffee there.
  • Extremely friendly and helpful staff! They have a great selection of books and a charming atmosphere! Happy to support local!
  • A Traverse City treasure. Been here for more than 50 years. Now historically located in the old Penneys building. Coffee bar upstairs and down. Reading nooks, easy to navigate, maps and charts of great lake region galore. One can spend hours here
  • Just about any book you could want, the downstairs section is great with a second coffee shop. The travel book section could use a little more selection.
