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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Elberta Beach and Arcadia Dunes CS Mott Nature Preserve. Let the collections at Music House Museum and S.S. City of Milwaukee/ USCGC Acacia capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Avalanche Preserve Recreation Area (in Boyne City), Resort Pike Cidery and Winery (in Petoskey) and Mackinaw City (Heritage Village at Mackinaw & Mackinaw Bridge Museum). There's much more to do: do a tasting at Hawthorne Vineyards, enjoy the sand and surf at Platte Point Beach, stroll through First Street Beach, and stroll around Ludington State Park.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Traverse City trip planner.

In July in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 59°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
