This place has everything! Lots of good stores and usually can find a great deal. It is easy to get to off the expressway. There are only fast food restaurants in the area, so if you want to eat at a nicer place you'll have to head into downtown Howell. Look on their website to find coupons that can be used in certain stores.

Reviewed By Davidamy617 - Novi, Michigan

We went with 5 other couples. We had 4 samples of wine then we each bought some bottles to enjoy outside. The cheese tray was a great addition. They do have craft beer from a local brewery, too. It was a lovely evening!

Howell Carnegie Library

Reviewed By 450suey - Brighton, United States

You don't have to be a kid to enjoy this Great Library! The second you enter this historical building with it's warm atmosphere, you are doused with nostalgia by the delightful smell of real books. (It is technology enriched for those who aren't page turners). Delightful and knowledgeable staff aren't the "uppity librarians of old". Expansive collection and a joy to turn back time within these walls. Highly recommend.

Livingston Antique Outlet

Reviewed By DanandSharon - Grand Blanc, Mi

This on one of the best Antique Malls in the mid-west---I believe it is the best in Michigan by far. Building after building. It just goes on and on. Great variety and unlike a lot of "antique" malls this one really is ANTIQUES for the most part. It's worth the drive. It is just a little difficult to find once you get off I96--but it's right there and handy once you see how to do it. Great place

Castaway Play

Laser Tag, Indoor Play Structure, Multiple Bounce Houses, Arcade, Build-A-Pal, Atomic Rush, Full Service Cafe, & Daycare

Reviewed By rysoftballstar - Toledo, Ohio

I was hesitant because of the mixed reviews on here. However our family loved it! We took our 2 & 4 year old right at 10am on a Thursday. It was pretty dead with just a handful of families. It was very affordable- they do charge for adults $2 unlike other places where they are free, however kids are cheaper than other places, my 2yr old was only $5! I suggest 2 hours, we planned that and 10min before that 2hrs was up my kids came to me exhausted ready to leave. Right off the highway and easy to find. I admit from the outside the building needs some TLC as the sign is messed up and the entrance is somewhat confusing. But once inside structures and bathrooms were extremely clean. Staff was very friendly, even giving me back quarters machines ate. Also I appreciated the affordable snacks- $1 animal crackers and $1.25 ice cream is perfect snack break mid play. You can't bring in lunch so that was a good snack. Though I did notice parents brought in kids water bottles and staff had no problem. The play structure was huge. One section was broken but it was expertly marked off with the real netting, nothing temporary or something people could get through. The couple bounce houses added variety. Well worth our 1hr daytrip up that way!

Historic Howell Theater

Reviewed By Matt S - Brighton, Michigan

The Howell Theater is how I remembered going to movies before the era of the multi-plex......center aisles with seating on either end, non-reclining chairs, all you need to watch a movie. It was great taking the family here to see a movie, especially not having to park in a parking lot of hundreds of spaces while figuring out which of 19 theaters to walk into..........definitely a great option when in Howell.

Howell Nature Center

Reviewed By Stephanie W - Fenton, Michigan

I absolutely love the nature center! They have rescued animals from all over the US and have little stories by each animal explaining how and why they ended up there. There are so many animals that you see every day in nature but then so many more unique animals as well that require the care of the nature centers workers. It’s such a beautiful place for animals to be cared for. The kids loved it too! We took our kids ages 2-12 and each of them loved it. There is a play scape towards the end of the nature trails for kids to play in and it’s shaded so well! There is a BEAUTIFUL tree house in memory of a sweet young girl. I highly recommend taking children here!

If you are looking for a great golf course and very good meal afterwards, this is the place to go. The fees are very reasonable for 18 holes and the meal (cheeseburger + fries) at the restaurant is excellent.
