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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pyramid Point Trail and Grass River Natural Area. Take a break from Traverse City with a short trip to The Oden State Fish Hatchery in Alanson, about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, browse the collection at Traverse Area District Library, don't miss a visit to Benjamin Twiggs, legendary cherry products, and explore the activities along Grand Traverse Bay.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Traverse City holiday maker .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
