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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive & Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore), Petoskey (Petoskey State Park & Little Traverse Wheelway) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling). There's lots more to do: indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, enjoy the sea views from Mission Point Lighthouse, contemplate the long history of The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, and sample the fine beverages at Grand Traverse Distillery.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Traverse City trip itinerary planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
