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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mushroom House Tours of Charlevoix (in Charlevoix), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Grayling) and Empire (Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, & more). There's still lots to do: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, do a tasting at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room, explore the landscape on two wheels at Little Traverse Wheelway, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To see other places to visit, photos, maps, and tourist information, read Traverse City visit planning app .

In September, daily temperatures in Traverse City can reach 74°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
