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 Sunset Park. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling). There's still lots to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, make a trip to Front Street, enjoy the sea views from Old Mission Lighthouse, and browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To find maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Traverse City attractions planner.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
