With dozens of beaches on the shores of Lake Michigan, award-winning wineries, stunning scenery and a charming, walkable downtown, Traverse City is an ideal getaway any season of the year.
Topping many national lists for the quality of its restaurants and art galleries, Traverse City will delight foodies and art lovers. From our Traverse City hotels, there’s easy access to the area’s many seasonal events, including summer outdoor concerts performed by students and faculty at the Interlochen Center for the Arts.
You can explore the coast by boat or take a cruise in a “tall ship,” experiencing Lake Michigan history. Visit the area’s many lighthouses or enjoy watersports and fishing in one of the bays. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore−considered by many to be one of the most scenic places in the US−is just 25 miles away from our Traverse City accommodations.
Golfing at a top-rated course is another summertime favorite activity, while snowmobiling and snowshoeing top winter itineraries. You can also book a treatment at a local spa any time of year, or if gaming is more your speed, visit one of the casinos located near your Traverse City hotel, such as Turtle Creek and Leelanau Sands.
