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 Traverse City's surroundings by going to Ludington (Big Sable Point Lighthouse, Ludington State Park, & more), Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge, Museum of Ojibwa Culture, & more) and Mackinaw City (Colonial Michilimackinac, Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park, & more). Next up on the itinerary: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, learn about winemaking at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, visit a coastal fixture at Cana Island Lighthouse, and admire all the interesting features of Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.

To find maps, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Traverse City sightseeing planner .

In September, daytime highs in Traverse City are 74°F, while nighttime lows are 54°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
