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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Front Street and Music House Museum. Shop till you drop at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons and Michigan Artists Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire) and Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum (in Northport). There's much more to do: enjoy the sea views from Old Mission Lighthouse, stroll through Clinch Park, explore the world behind art at Dennos Museum Center, and learn about winemaking at Left Foot Charley Winery.

To find reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read our Traverse City day trip website .

In December, daily temperatures in Traverse City can reach 34°F, while at night they dip to 24°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
