Traverse City

Traverse City might be well known for its huge cherry industry, but its position along Grand Traverse Bay in Lake Michigan endows it with fine scenery and a wealth of outdoor attractions.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Mackinaw City (Colonial Michilimackinac, Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, & more), Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge & Museum of Ojibwa Culture) and Ludington (Ludington Waterfront Park, Ludington State Park, & more). The adventure continues: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, enjoy the sea views from Old Mission Lighthouse, shop like a local with Front Street, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To find photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Traverse City holiday builder app .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in August, and nighttime lows around 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
