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 Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive & Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore). There's lots more to do: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, visit a coastal fixture at Old Mission Lighthouse, and take a stroll through Front Street.
