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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at L. Mawby Vineyards and Left Foot Charley Winery. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ludington North Breakwater Light and Cross In The Woods National Shrine. Explore Traverse City's surroundings by going to North Western State Trail (in Petoskey), Boyne Highlands (in Harbor Springs) and Crystal Mountain (in Thompsonville). There's still lots to do: hike along Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails, enjoy the sea views from Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, tee off at Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club, and kick back and relax at Clinch Park.

To see other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Traverse City road trip site .

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
