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: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive), Saint Ignace (Museum of Ojibwa Culture & Mackinac Bridge) and Ludington State Park (in Ludington). There's lots more to do: indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, look for gifts at American Spoon, enjoy the sea views from Old Mission Lighthouse, and learn about winemaking at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room.

To see traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Traverse City trip itinerary planning tool .

July in Traverse City sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 59°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
