Warehouse District


Traverse City’s Central Neighborhoods and Warehouse District have a rich and inviting history. Intersected by Traverse City’s Boardman River, a popular waterway for fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding, the Warehouse District has a relaxed and approachable vibe complimented by its eclectic shops, restaurants, breweries, and distilleries. What was once a blighted area, is now a vibrant community center that can be enjoyed year round. If you enjoy an urban setting, the Warehouse District and surrounding areas are peppered with condos and additional developments are coming in the next few years.

If you crave more of a residential feel, we move up across front street into Traverse City’s central neighborhoods. Tree-lined streets weave through victorian architecture that offers ample square footage, private yards, and a neighborhood feel. It’s easy to pick up on our city history in this area where many brick-paved streets remain and the historic charm is preserved in almost every home.

This part of town is all about walkability, from the numerous bars and restaurants to Traverse City’s first school, convenience is never in short supply. These neighborhoods are notoriously tight-knit and thrive off of the community feel. In the summer you’ll note the pristine yards and beautiful gardens while the fall turns this area into northern Michigan’s hottest Halloween attraction with elaborate decorations and full-sized candy bars for trick or treaters, every kid in town knows this is the place to be on October 31.
