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.
Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Colonial Michilimackinac (in Mackinaw City), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge & Museum of Ojibwa Culture). There's lots more to do: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, shop like a local with Front Street, learn about winemaking at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, and browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

Plan a Traverse City trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in August, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
