From historic lighthouses, picturesque golf courses, wonderful wineries and beautiful beaches to a host of friendly downtown shops and restaurants, Traverse City and its neighboring villages offer a myriad of ways to experience northwestern Michigan this summer. Cruise along M-22 for great coastline views of the bays and Lake Michigan or spend the day exploring the trails and beaches along Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Catch a concert at Interlochen or travel up Old Mission Peninsula for a taste of award-winning local wines. Discover amazing underwater sights while diving the shipwrecks near the Manitou Islands. For tourists, the choices seem endless. Pick a weekend to enjoy the Traverse City area with someone special, breathe the cool breeze off Lake Michigan and return home refreshed!
