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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bowers Harbor Vineyards and Chateau Grand Traverse Winery. Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Blustone Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau) and Leelanau Wine Cellars (in Omena). There's lots more to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Northern Latitudes Distillery, do a tasting at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room, and examine the collection at Music House Museum.

Planning Traverse City trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Valparaiso to Traverse City is an approximately 4.5-hour car ride. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Valparaiso to Traverse City due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Valparaiso in October, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Traverse City: temperatures range from 60°F by day to 44°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can go by car back home.

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.
