Cherry Capital of the World

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.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Sat): examine the collection at Music House Museum, play a few rounds at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Grand Traverse Distillery, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Clinch Park. Keep things going the next day: cast your line with a fishing tour, then do a tasting at Suttons Bay Ciders, then learn about winemaking at Left Foot Charley Winery, and finally awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area.

Plan my Traverse City trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Traverse City. In June, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 54°F. On the 6th (Mon), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Mackinac Island.
