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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (in Empire), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Colonial Michilimackinac (in Mackinaw City). The adventure continues: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, take an in-depth tour of Museum of Ojibwa Culture, snap pictures at Mackinac Bridge, and stroll around Cave Point County Park.

To see traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Traverse City trip itinerary planning app .

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
