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 Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge & Museum of Ojibwa Culture), Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive & Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore) and Colonial Michilimackinac (in Mackinaw City). There's still lots to do: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, learn about winemaking at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room, play a few rounds at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip planner .

July in Traverse City sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 59°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
