About Downtown Howell:
A Great American Main Street Community

Here in Howell, we're different... In a good way. Where else can you stroll amid historic buildings that offer both character and welcoming charm? 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.  As a 2018 Great American Main Street Award winner, we are proud of the inviting atmosphere, the wide smiles and warm welcomes.  We are proud of our year-round acclaimed festivals and events, the 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 the people and sense of place that you will find here!

People make a town - through their love of the place, their commitment to developing a vibrant community, their commitment to each other, and to our guests.  All of these combined make 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 different...in a good way. We hope you like what you see enough to come, spend a little time here, and enjoy the many shops, dining locations, and attractions
