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 “getaways” or extended vacation.

In 2009, another section of this trail was paved from just west of Clare through Evart, and there areplans to pave more of this trail throughReed City and beyond. This route has been designated as US Route 20 which extends west to the Pacific coast!
