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.
Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Ludington State Park (in Ludington), Colonial Michilimackinac (in Mackinaw City) and Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge & Museum of Ojibwa Culture). The adventure continues: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, take a stroll through Front Street, do a tasting at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Traverse City day trip planning app .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
