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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Traverse City: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive) and Petoskey (Petoskey State Park, Little Traverse Wheelway, & more). There's much more to do: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, learn about winemaking at Left Foot Charley Winery, make a trip to Mission Point Lighthouse, and shop like a local with The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To see where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read our Traverse City trip maker app .

Expect a daytime high around 46°F in November, and nighttime lows around 32°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
