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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Colonial Michilimackinac and Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access. Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive), Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge & Museum of Ojibwa Culture) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling). The adventure continues: indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, take in the exciting artwork at Michigan Artists Gallery, learn about winemaking at Bowers Harbor Vineyards, and browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.
