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.
Take a break from the city and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Long Lake. Step off the beaten path and head to Grand Traverse Bay and Traverse City State Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Blustone Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau), Pine River Paddlesports (in Wellston) and Crystal Mountain (in Thompsonville). Next up on the itinerary: play a few rounds at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, do a tasting at Left Foot Charley Winery, get lost in a book at Elk Rapids District Library, and make a trip to Benjamin Twiggs, legendary cherry products.

For photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read our Traverse City driving holiday planner .

In May, daily temperatures in Traverse City can reach 67°F, while at night they dip to 43°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
