Grand Traverse County

Trip Planner USA  /  Michigan  /  Grand Traverse County
(4.1/5 based on 6,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: wineries, shopping, historic sites
Characterized by sandy shores along Lake Michigan dotted with historical lighthouses and pristine inland lakes, Grand Traverse County stands as a notably scenic Midwestern area. The county lies relatively far from population centers to the south, making it an appropriate spot for the expansive groves of cherry trees and peninsula of vineyards jutting out into the bay. Visitors flock here to boat and canoe in summer, snap photos of foliage in fall, and ride snowmobiles in winter. With a population of about 15,000, Traverse City is the sparsely populated county's largest town and the location of its airport.
