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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Traverse City: Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Empire Bluff Trail, & more), Charlevoix (Mushroom House Tours of Charlevoix & Castle Farms) and Good Harbor Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau). Next up on the itinerary: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, learn about winemaking at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, take a stroll through Front Street, and browse the different shops at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To find photos, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip itinerary site .

Expect a daytime high around 60°F in October, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
