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.
Three Pines Studio and Benzie Area Historical Society & Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Do your shopping at Front Street and Wilson Antiques. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Thompsonville (Michigan Legacy Art Park & Crystal Mountain), Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire) and St. Ambrose Cellars (in Beulah). There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, view the masterpieces at Higher Art Gallery, shop like a local with Michigan Artists Gallery, and get engrossed in the history at Heritage Village at Mackinaw.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 29°F, and evening lows to 17°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
