Shop Different

What gives us the right to say "Shop Different...Shop Downtown Howell?" After all, every shopping venue is at least a little different.

Well, we're a lot different. In a good way. Where else can you stroll amid nearly 200-year-old historical buildings? Be greeted by folks who actually own the store you've walked into? And, of course, there's our unique mix of independent dining, entertainment and "shoppertunity" options you simply won't find anywhere else. Especially not with the warmth, style and generosity that we serve up in Howell.

Proud of ourselves? Well, yes. We have a lot to be proud of. The inviting atmosphere. The wide smiles and warm welcomes. Our acclaimed festivals and events. Over forty different specialty retailers (from traditional to hip & quirky) and deliciously different dining options. Parks, a beach, that remarkable historical architecture...we could go on. But really what we're most proud of is each other.

People make a town. Through their love of the place. Their commitment to developing a vibrant community - and their commitment to each other, and to our guests. This makes a big difference. The Howell difference. We're a town with roots and a real family feel. We believe you'll feel it, too.

We invite you to explore our site and get a better look at what we're about. Why we're a good way. We hope you like what you see enough to come, spend a little time here, and Shop Different...Shop Downtown Howell.

P.S. We're really easy to get to. We're conveniently located right off of 1-96 (Exit 137 is a good one to take). Plus, parking is free, whether it's on the street or in one of our newly-redesigned, re-paved, re-landscaped and re-markable lots.
