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.
Visiting Haserot Beach and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore will get you outdoors. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Mari Vineyards and Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Manistee (S.S. City of Milwaukee/ USCGC Acacia & Manistee North Pierhead Lighthouse), Silver Leaf Vineyard & Winery (in Suttons Bay) and Blustone Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau). Next up on the itinerary: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Northern Latitudes Distillery, and don't miss a visit to Benjamin Twiggs, legendary cherry products.
