Petoskey Area Shopping

Petoskey is a cute downtown area with plenty of shopping and restaurants to try. It is worth the drive (under an hour) to shop local shops, try local restaurants and be sure to leave with some gourmet cheese, and fudge! Whenever my family come in town, we like to spend the day checking out the local shops.  Plenty to see and do.  Make sure you stop by Petoskey Pretzel company for an awesome soft pretzel!
