Traverse City

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: Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark (in Boyne Falls) and Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive & Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore). Next up on the itinerary: buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, take a stroll through Front Street, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, and visit a coastal fixture at Old Mission Lighthouse.

To see reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Traverse City trip website .

Expect a daytime high around 28°F in January, and nighttime lows around 17°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
