Traverse City

— 2 nights

Cherry Capital of the World

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Cherry Bowl Drive-In Theatre as well as Point Betsie Lighthouse. Kick off your visit on the 30th (Fri): visit a coastal fixture at Point Betsie Lighthouse, watch a film at Cherry Bowl Drive-In Theatre, and then contemplate the long history of The Village at Grand Traverse Commons. On the next day, kick back and relax at Lake Michigan Beach Park and then explore the striking landscape of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

To find photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Traverse City day trip planning website.

Great Lakes State
A state inextricably tied to its waterways, Michigan does water activities better than almost any other place in the country. Things to do in the state include numerous opportunities to swim, fish, sail, motorboat, and canoe. The country's only state to stretch over two peninsulas, Michigan features a long freshwater coastline. In a land of nearly 65,000 inland lakes and ponds, you can never be too far from a natural water source. Michigan's major claim to fame is its status as the center of the U.S. automotive industry, with the Detroit metropolitan area housing the country's three major car manufacturers. The city is also a major center of culture, the birthplace of the Motown Sound, and the home of several museums and other tourist attractions. Farther from the big urban centers, Michigan offers visitors a world of apple and cherry orchards, rustic villages, and picturesque vineyards.
