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 discover tucked-away gems like Charles Mears State Park and Rock Island State Park. Shop till you drop at Gallaghers Farm Market and The Cheese Lady. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire), Platte Point Beach (in Honor) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Glen Arbor). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Grand Traverse Bay, wander the streets of Front Street, take in the pleasant sights at Walk of Art, and don't miss a visit to Benjamin Twiggs, legendary cherry products.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in August, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
