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.
Visit Platte Point Beach and Frankfort Beach for some beach relaxation. Step off the beaten path and head to Lake Michigan Beach Park and Lake Ann Brewing Company. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum (in Northport), Blustone Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau) and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire). There's more to do: don't miss a visit to Old Mission Lighthouse and learn about winemaking at Mari Vineyards.

Start your trip to Traverse City by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

In July in Traverse City, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 59°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
