Nestled along the deep blue waters of Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City is the cultural and social centre of a four-season recreational paradise.
With more than 150 inland lakes and hundreds of miles of Lake Michigan shoreline (including the majestic Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, named ‘The Most Beautiful Place in America’ by Good Morning America viewers), you’ll find almost limitless opportunities for boating, sailing, paddling, swimming and beachcombing. There are miles of hiking and cycling trails, blue-ribbon trout streams, and more than 20 golf courses with heart-stopping views and world-class designs.
Long known as the “Cherry Capital of the World,” Traverse City is also an increasingly famous wine-producing region, with more than 40 wineries offering tours and tastings of their award-winning vintages. We’re also winning national acclaim for our fresh, imaginative regional cuisine.
A shopper’s paradise, Traverse City’s turn-of-the-century downtown has more than 150 delightful boutiques, galleries and restaurants.And there’s food for the soul, too; Traverse City is rich with museums, galleries, theatres and music festivals. (The world-renowned Interlochen Center for the Arts is just up the road.)
You can walk a beach by moonlight, dine to the sound of a symphony orchestra, steer a schooner across the bay, or take a drive through some of the prettiest countryside on earth. In other words, it’s the perfect spot for your True North vacation. Visit www.traversecity.com or call 1-800-TRAVERSE to learn more.
