Downtown Howell - A Great American Main Street
At the corner of Grand River and Michigan Avenue you will find the center of Downtown Howell. Winner of the 2018 Great American Main Street Award, Howell, is a bustling, vibrant city with old world charm. The atmosphere of the city is a reflection of the people that live here...A community that works together to create a great place to live and do business. Shop the local Farmers market on Sunday mornings from May through November or plan on catching an evening Concert in the Park, or Reading for Children in the Courthouse pavilion. Join the crowd and be a part of the thousands of visitors who attend the annual events; The Michigan Challenge Balloon Fest, Melon Fest, Legend of Sleepy Howell, and the Fantasy of Lights Parade. There is always "something" happening in Downtown Howell. The streets are lined with quaint local shops and restaurants. Be sure to make a stop at 2Fog's Pub, the local Speak-easy, the entrance is hard to find off the back alley but don't worry just ask anyone on the street and they will happily explain how to find it. If you are in the city on a Wednesday evening try Abberant Ales and sign up for their Trivia Contest. A great way to spend an evening since everyone is a "friend" or friendly at Abberant Ales. Searching for a handmade gift for that special someone? Venture into "Finding Roots" the local gift shop inspired by nature. They carry local Michigan made items from jewelry, clothing and garden items to herbs and candles. Better buy it when you see it because they only carry one of a kind.
