Traverse City

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.
On the 7th (Sat), buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons and then indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink. Here are some ideas for day two: wander the streets of Front Street, make a trip to Benjamin Twiggs, legendary cherry products, then learn about winemaking at Bowers Harbor Vineyards, then stop by Cherry Republic of Traverse City, and finally learn about winemaking at Left Foot Charley Winery.
