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.
Do your shopping at Front Street and Higher Art Gallery. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access and Stearns Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling) and Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive & Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore). There's still lots to do: buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, look for gifts at Cherry Republic of Traverse City, browse the eclectic array of goods at Gallaghers Farm Market, and do a tasting at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room.

In July in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 59°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
