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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail (in Glen Arbor), Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, &more) and Petoskey (Petoskey State Park, Little Traverse Wheelway, &more). There's much more to do: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, admire the masterpieces at Dennos Museum Center, don't miss a visit to Benjamin Twiggs, legendary cherry products, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

For ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Traverse City tour planning app.

Expect a daytime high around 74°F in September, and nighttime lows around 54°F.
