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.
Kids will enjoy Colonial Michilimackinac and Kayaking & Canoeing. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Traverse City: Mackinaw City (Heritage Village at Mackinaw & Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse), Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire) and Mackinac Bridge (in Saint Ignace). There's much more to do: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, visit a coastal fixture at Old Mission Lighthouse, shop like a local with Front Street, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

For photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, use the Traverse City online day trip planner .

July in Traverse City sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 59°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
