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: Petoskey (Burnt Marshmallow Brewing, Little Traverse Wheelway, &more), Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Empire Bluff Trail, &more) and Mackinaw City (McGulpin Point Lighthouse & Historic Site & Colonial Michilimackinac). And it doesn't end there: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, tour the pleasant surroundings at Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails, steep yourself in history at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, and hike along Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.

To find maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Traverse City road trip app.

Stow to Traverse City is an approximately 6.5-hour car ride. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and flight. In September in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 74°F during the day and 54°F at night. On the 15th (Tue), you'll travel back home.
