Enjoy the walkable downtown of the village of Roscommon. Once parked, there are many small, unique stores offering gifts, jewelry, souvenirs and more within a few blocks of downtown. Enjoy a break at a coffee shop, wander through the aisles of the wine store, or stop at the local butcher shop.

In Prudenville and Houghton Lake, there are many shops along M-55. Keep your eyes open for gift shops, mercantiles, book stores, quilt stores and other treasures. In addition, specialty groceries can be found from one end of the town to the other including butcher shopes, fruit markets, and more.

Fishing or spending time on the motorized trails in Saint Helen? Their local stores will have what you need to bait your hook, repair a vehicle, or purchase a gift. Many of the businesses do double duty (or more). Visit the local grocery store; you can fill your vehicle with gas, buy groceries, and get fresh meats and produce. Souvenirs can be found in the t-shirt, liquor and hardware stores.
