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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Colonial Michilimackinac and Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling) and Saint Ignace (Mackinac Bridge & Museum of Ojibwa Culture). And it doesn't end there: walk around Ludington State Park, make a trip to Front Street, do a tasting at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, and browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To see maps, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip builder website .

August in Traverse City sees daily highs of 79°F and lows of 60°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
