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: Good Harbor Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau), Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum (in Northport) and Ellie Harold Art Studio & Gallery (in Frankfort). There's still lots to do: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, don't miss a visit to Old Mission Lighthouse, browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, and learn about winemaking at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Traverse City attractions planner .

In August in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 60°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
