Traverse City highlights
Traverse City is a beautiful place, located in Michigan’s Grand Traverse County, stretching all the way to Leelanau County. It is surrounded by wonderful beaches, great people, and star accommodations.
The city also has its fair share of culture and attractions. With award-winning chefs and wines located on nearly every street, it’s hard not to stumble across world-class food. The city has earned a prominent position in many publications for its wide selection and the great taste of its foods. These publications include: Midwest Living magazine, Livability.com, and Bon Appetit. The food of the region is a combination of imagination and enthusiasm. Perhaps its most defining characteristic is the constant use of fresh fruits and vegetables grown and harvested on nearby farms and forests. And the vineyards of the city are of the same caliber.
If exquisite food isn’t enough to attract you, perhaps the city’s beaches will do the job. The region has more than 150 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and nearly 150 lakes of 10 acres or more. Whether you are looking to spend your time alone or in a spirit of company, there is a beach for you and your family.

Whatever, they have: art museums, galleries, historical sites, opera houses, etc. And if you are a nature enthusiast, you can always walk to a nearby forest or trail.
Thousands of tourists flock to Traverse City hotels and beaches each year during the summer; some even come during the winter for the many events that occur during that time. Without a doubt, it is the ideal vacation destination.
