Traverse City

— 7 nights

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.
You'll get in some beach time at Clinch Park and Haserot Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bowers Harbor Vineyards and Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf. Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Thompsonville (Michigan Legacy Art Park & Iron Fish Distillery), Frankfort (Point Betsie Lighthouse & Frankfort Beach) and Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club (in Arcadia). Next up on the itinerary: learn about winemaking at 45 North Vineyard & Winery, soothe aching muscles at Yoga in the Vines, explore the world behind art at Dennos Museum Center, and sample the tasty concoctions at Right Brain Brewery.
