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 in touch with nature at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Stearns Park. Get some historical perspective at Cana Island Lighthouse and Old Mission Lighthouse. Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Little Traverse Wheelway (in Petoskey) and Mushroom Houses of Charlevoix (in Charlevoix). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Front Street, learn about winemaking at Chateau Chantal Winery and Inn, buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, and kick back and relax at Clinch Park.

For maps, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Traverse City vacation trip planner.

September in Traverse City sees daily highs of 71°F and lows of 51°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
