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.
Get some historical perspective at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Fishtown. Venture out of the city with trips to Crooked Vine Vineyard & Winery (in Alanson) and Odawa Casino (in Petoskey). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Front Street, browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, do a tasting at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room, and enjoy the sea views from Old Mission Lighthouse.

For more things to do, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip planner .

In December in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 34°F during the day and 24°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
