Traverse City

Cherry Capital of the World

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Tall Ship Manitou - Day Tours as well as Cherry Republic of Traverse City. Go for a jaunt from Traverse City to Empire to see Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore about 38 minutes away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sea views from Mission Point Lighthouse, take in the pleasant sights at Walk of Art, take a stroll through Front Street, and stop by American Spoon.

For where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 74°F in September, and nighttime lows around 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
