Living in Clare
The downtown district of Clare offers
shopping at its best! Recall a time when you could stroll a brick-lined
sidewalk with trees draped in white lights, where each store is unique.
Proprietors treat you as a special guest as you discover items ranging from
clothing and collectibles to home decorating,biking gear, hardware, and of
course,Celtic treasures. When you need a break from shopping, stop and enjoy a
cup of coffee and lunch or dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. And, for a special
treat, visit the world-famous Cops & Doughnuts Bakery. In addition to the
wonderful stores downtown, many stores in the Clare area feature items from
sporting goods to Amish crafted goods. Visit the Amish Quilt Auction, Craft
Show, and Flea Market the third weekend in May and the Friday and Saturday of
the Labor Day holiday.
Clare County provides a variety of
recreation options and natural beauty for your spring, summer, fall and winter
