Traverse City
— 5 nights
Fly:  16​h
End: Copenhagen

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.
Bring the kids along to Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf and Clinch Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive), Ellie Harold Art Studio & Gallery (in Frankfort) and Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark (in Boyne Falls). There's still lots to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, take a stroll through Front Street, and stop by American Spoon.

To find ratings, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Traverse City travel itinerary planner.

Copenhagen, Denmark to Traverse City is an approximately 16-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Copenhagen to Traverse City is minus 6 hours. When traveling from Copenhagen in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Traverse City: temperatures range from 27°C by day to 14°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
