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. While the population is only about 15,000 here, the city and its airport serve as a transportation hub and base for exploring the greater region. In the summer, swimmers, sailors, paddlers, and anglers take to the water, and wine aficionados head to the vineyards and wineries on Old Mission Peninsula. Autumn brings out colorful foliage, and the heavy snow of winter carries with it prime snowmobiling and snowshoeing. A local symphony, playhouse, and collection of museums bring culture to Traverse City, and gourmands can satisfy their taste buds in the town's diverse eateries. Make your own Traverse City vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United States trip itinerary maker app.
