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: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, &more), Petoskey (Petoskey State Park & Little Traverse Wheelway) and Charlevoix Circle of Arts (in Charlevoix). Next up on the itinerary: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, wander the streets of Front Street, and kick back and relax at Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access.

To find reviews, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Traverse City vacation planner.

July in Traverse City sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 59°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
