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.
Attractions like Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access and Silver Lake State Park make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Mushroom House Tours of Charlevoix (in Charlevoix), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling) and Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, & more). Next up on the itinerary: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, play a few rounds at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, learn about winemaking at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room, and shop like a local with Front Street.

Find out how to plan Traverse City trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

October in Traverse City sees daily highs of 60°F and lows of 44°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
