Cherry Capital of the World

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Empire Bluff Trail and Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail. Escape the urban bustle at Clinch Park and Lake Michigan Beach Park. There's still lots to do: stop by Cherry Republic of Traverse City, do a tasting at Chateau Chantal Winery & Tasting Room, play a few rounds at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Grand Traverse Distillery.
