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.
Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Mushroom House Tours of Charlevoix (in Charlevoix), Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive) and Little Traverse Wheelway (in Petoskey). There's lots more to do: visit a coastal fixture at Mission Point Lighthouse, browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, learn about winemaking at Bowers Harbor Vineyards, and enjoy the sand and surf at Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Traverse City route tool .

In July, daily temperatures in Traverse City can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
