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 Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Front Street and Old Mission Lighthouse. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Traverse City: Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access (in Hart) and Stearns Park (in Ludington). Next up on the itinerary: browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, look for gifts at American Spoon, learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, and do a tasting at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
