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.
Visit Lake Michigan Beach Park and Clinch Park for some beach relaxation. Get outdoors at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Kayaking & Canoeing. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Ellie Harold Art Studio & Gallery (in Frankfort) and Call of the Wild Museum (in Gaylord). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, take in nature's colorful creations at Twisted Fish Gallery, take a stroll through Front Street, and take in the exciting artwork at Michigan Artists Gallery.
