Small Town Charm with Everything You Need
Known for its Swiss-architecture, downtown Gaylord offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, while still delivering on everything you could possibly want. With its recently remodeled streetscape, the Alpine Village has a quaint vibe while still offering plenty of shops filled with distinctive clothing and gifts, trendy eateries and a vibrant nightlife. Thanks to a major push for pedestrian-friendly everything, downtown Gaylord is now a morning, noon and night destination for walkers, shoppers, strollers and idle sitters alike.
Our Courthouse lawn is a popular stop where you can relax alongside our fountain in the summer or take a selfie in front of our famous ice tree in the winter. Lose yourself in antique and home decor shops, browse through cases of fine jewelry, check out an extensive collection of outdoor gear, peruse a cozy bookstore and so much more! Find out where the best retail therapy is on our shopping page.
If you’re more concerned about filling your stomach, Gaylord has something for every appetite! Your palate won’t complain with what we have to offer – from BBQ, fast and fresh, Chinese and Greek to home-cooked comfort food. Foodies will find something to satisfy their taste buds at one of our many restaurants, with outdoor seating options galore. Don’t forget to check out some microbrews and start your journey on the Craft Tap and Beer Trail.
Gaylord is truly a small town that delivers BIG. Stay a while, relax in our Alpine-bliss and treat yourself to everything you deserve on a getaway.
