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.
Relax by the water at Haserot Beach and Sunset Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fishing Charters & Tours and Grand Traverse Bay. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Traverse City: Frankfort Beach (in Frankfort), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Glen Arbor) and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire). The adventure continues: admire the majestic nature at Straits State Park, identify plant and animal life at Thorne Swift Nature Preserve, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, and contemplate the waterfront views at Boardman River.

In July in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 59°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
