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.
Front Street and Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your inner history buff will appreciate Old Mission Lighthouse and The Village at Grand Traverse Commons. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive), Ludington (Ludington State Park & Stearns Park) and Silver Lake State Park (in Hart). There's lots more to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, sample the fine beverages at Grand Traverse Distillery, and kick back and relax at Clinch Park.

In June, daily temperatures in Traverse City can reach 76°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
